The Art Kitchen  has moved to a more loosely based collective of folks who like making/art/craft etc. We have some equipment in storage for workshops, demonstrations and outreach but until a group of people want to step up, the communal space will be on hiatus. We have created a google groups for everyone to communicate and make things happen!


The Basic Membership is $45 with $25 deposit and includes access to communal studios (letterpress, papermaking, darkroom, silversmithing, etc.), gallery shows, discounted class rates, opportunities to participate in collaborations, and to be part of a vibrant creative community. If you sign up for 6 months you get 10% off and 20% off for a year commitment.
There are a limited number of Work-Study Memberships for those in need at $25 with a two-hour commitment per week and $25 deposit.
The Studio Membership $100 with $50 deposit has  all the benefits of general membership with additional benefits of individual space and extended access hours.

We offer a Day Use Membership for $20 a day with a $25 refundable deposit.

We are always grateful volunteers so if you have time we would love your help.
All memberships besides the supporting memberships require an application.

    I am pleased to see what you are doing!! We are currently setting up a clay co-op at Kentuck with a similar spirit. You are a bit further along it seems! Congratulations!!
    I do have quite a bit of stuff that is basically the stuff of 15 years of accumulation as an art teacher. I am no longer a general art teacher because my studio at Kentuck(pottery) is doing really well.I am primarily teaching pottery when production allows. I also have shelves and a couple of tables that are really just eating my house and studio. The co-op is also space challenged so there are some salvaged materials there that can be re-purposed. My number is 242-2530, call me if you are interested
