Old Town Artisan Studios

Mobile Art Program (2019-2020)

The Old Town Artisan Studios was established in 2009 to provide positive art experiences for all people despite age, disability, or financial condition. We believe art is healing and has an everlasting positive impact on each of us and the world around us.

We are a 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 forms of art. Independent studio use, along with individual private instruction and classes for children, adults, and seniors, are all blended with fee exempt instruction offered to numerous charities serving communities in our desert valley. In 2018 we achieved over 21,000 art experiences in the Coachella Valley.

Our Anderson Children’s Foundation grant is target at the more remote areas of the Coachella Valley that work with children. This grant will allow us to expand our Mobile Art Program on a more consistent bases in these harder to reach locations. This year long program will serve organizations like the YMCA and the Boys & Girls Clubs and many more. Children will experience a wide range of art projects which will include, ceramics, sculpture, fused glass, painting and more!
