Studio Arts Boulder is a non-profit art education organization that provides high-quality ceramics programs at the Boulder Pottery Lab and partners with other studio arts organizations for programs in other mediums. The “studio arts” are those art forms which require a substantial investment in equipment and facilities that is beyond the means of most individuals, such as ceramics, printmaking, woodworking, metal, glass, and fiber.

Expansion Updates

Check out the latest concept design from Barrett Studio Architects for the second Studio Arts Boulder facility. Exterior features like weathered steel panels, charred wood siding, rammed earth, and mosaic accents hint at the activities inside the building. Teaching studios in five art forms (ceramics, woodworking, blacksmithing, glass, and printmaking) will provide community art classes to all ages and abilities. Gallery exhibition space and a rooftop terrace may be used as event venues. Flex space and administrative offices will make the building adaptable as the organization grows. A standout building in a gateway location, the new facility promises to deliver exciting programs for the Boulder community for generations to come.

Momentum: 3 years with Studio Arts Boulder

The Momentum report is a review of the last three years since Studio Arts Boulder took over management of the Pottery Lab. Instead of an annual report for last year, we wanted to give the community a more complete update about the Lab's transition from city-run program to independent nonprofit. Please click on the image below or visit www.studioartsboulder.org/momentum to access the full report.
