NEW! Family Open Lab every Wed thru Sat, 10 to 1!!

Sticky Art Lab is where children and adults can experiment together with arts and scraps materials and bring home a unique handmade project. We are diverting some treasures from the waste stream—and having fun doing it!

You might be interested in an Open Lab, a Birthday Party, Coffee & Crafts time, or a cool reuse workshop. Look around the website to find your program, then call your friends. This will be your favorite neighborhood art studio. Entry fee includes use of the space, all the materials, and help when you need it!

The emphasis is on what you learn as you make, about finding your own process, about conservation of materials. Process is noisy and messes are inspiration-at-play! Don't worry if you're a first-timer or more fancy, just roll up your sleeves and dive in.
