Artists in our Studio Program create work in our studio space at east Austin's Canopy arts community with the guidance of practicing artist facilitators. Each artist has their own work station, which is outfitted with their specific supplies. The goal for participating artists is to explore new mediums, strengthen their artistic voice, and build a cohesive portfolio of work for exhibition. Participants have opportunities to learn about all aspects of being a working artist, from creation to pricing to exhibition to sale.
Surrounded by a wealth of creatives, artists in the Studio Program also have the opportunity to visit other studios and galleries within the complex through Canopy Crawl, a twice monthly excursion into the arts community to check out exhibitions, meet other makers, and find new inspiration.
Our studio is open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9 am to 1 pm and the first and third Saturdays of the month from 12 pm to 4 pm. If you are interested in becoming a studio artist at SAGE Studio, please fill out our artist application. Studio artists must be 18+, have an intellectual or developmental disability, live in the Austin area, and have a serious interest in art-making.
