Mission & Vision
“When you take an art class at Old Town Artisan Studios, you are extending that same experience to an individual for whom it may be even more special. It’s a give and take transaction, and that makes it that much more rewarding!”
– Millie Pearson, Board Member
Old Town Artisan Studios is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides a warm and inviting place where people of all ages can reveal their creativity.
We offer instruction and classes in clay, fused glass, painting, drawing, and other art mediums. The fee-based classes for children, adults, and seniors, along with private workshops and events help to support the free and reduced-fee instruction offered to our local residents in need.
We are dedicated to ensuring that art remains a vibrant part of the creative fabric of the Coachella Valley – from art programs in schools to lifelong learning. Our Outreach Programs offer everyone the opportunity to experience art and self-expression. Through collaboration with local organizations who share our vision, we provide art classes to children and adults with special needs, as well as seniors and veterans. As some schools cut back on art programs, we also feel it is our duty to help fill that gap with art instruction in after-school programs.
The Outreach Programs are at the core of our mission. With increased studio classes helping to fund the Outreach Programs, our unique Mobile Mission allows us to partner with local schools, senior centers, various non-profits, and provide art instruction off-site. We bring art to our friends who cannot come to us! And our goal is to expand our outreach services and increase the number of lives we touch through art.
Help provide over 19,000 art experiences a year!
