ABOUT POP-UP STUDIOS

What would you make if an arts center moved into your neighborhood for two months? Pop-Up Studios transform your community center into a mobile art studio where you can take free one day art classes. Whether you have just an hour to commit to trying something new or you want to spend as much time as you can being creative with your neighbors and our teaching artists, the Pop-up Studios are for you! We provide the teaching artists and supplies, and you find the timeslot and topic that work for your interests and your schedule.

Pop-Up Studios travel from one community center to the next, so keep your eye out for when they Pop-Up in your neighborhood. Pop-Up Studios are for everybody and anybody!

Come meet other members of your community while learning new art techniques and being creative. Register for a free class and live your Creative Life!

Pop-up Studio programs are offered free of charge, but pre-registration is encouraged as we have limited seating and materials in each class. Register online using Reclink.

Get prepared to learn from some of the most inspiring teaching artists in Raleigh! Know what to expect from participating in a Pop-Up Studio and learn more about our instructors.
