Working Artist Studios (WAS) have 2 studios available for short term residency or studio rent, from 1 week to up to 1 month. They are located on the second floor and are perfect for working on a specific project or if one needs dedicated time away from distractions. All studios have natural daylight, high ceilings, shelves/cupboards, and 24hour access.
