apply and are accepted for membership, studio availability may change.
Many of Washington Studios' 39 live/work units retain the chalkboards and
cloakrooms of the former classrooms; the original gymnasium running track
was preserved, too, as a balcony in each of two split-level units. Shared
amenities include 2 galleries, a performance space, clay studio, 2
multi-purpose rooms, 4th floor meeting room, 3rd floor laundry room, a
project raw room/spray area, kiln room, and a large parking lot. The
building’s character has been preserved to a great extent, retaining many
of the historic elements.
Cooperative living can provide you
with more control over your living and working space than traditional
rental housing. It may also afford you the opportunity to collaborate and
share professional and artistic resources with other members of the
cooperative. In order to live in the cooperative you must apply for
Artspace Projects, Inc. and the cooperative
are committed to attracting creative individuals from diverse artistic and
cultural backgrounds who are of low to moderate income. We encourage all
people in the creative arts to apply regardless of race, creed, religion,

especially interested in individuals who are committed to building
community and willing to give some of their time and energy to the
Cooperative each month.
We are always accepting
artists involved in any medium: culinary, sound, visual, film,
literary, martial arts, dancers, singers, poets, bead makers, painters,
photographers or whatever you do that makes you an artist.
