Located in downtown Albuquerque, OFFCenter Community Arts project is a non-profit arts organization that believes art-making is central to community building. Our free-of-charge Open Studio is a safe place for everyone to make art.

We invite you to take a tour of our website to see the wide range of activities, events, programs, and resources we provide within our well-stocked studio. Better yet, drop in for a visit to:

  • Use a wide range of supplies, resources, and equipment for art, jewelry, sewing, and metal-smithing.
  • Participate in weekly skill-building workshops in art, crafts, music, and writing.
  • Develop skills in specialty technique and art-based workshops.
  • Discover emerging artists in our Gallery and buy affordable art.
  • Find goodies in our thrift shop.
We’re known and loved for organizing and hosting the Annual Little House Silent Auction; Arts & Crafts for Kids during the Downtown Growers Market; and more!

Concerned about Covid-19? So are we, which is why we're following local and state guidelines for staying safe!

We welcome your financial support right now.

We know we’re only one of many Albuquerque-based organizations taking a financial hit these days. We’re also keenly aware of the unique difficulties artists face during challenging times. Still,  we hope you’ll make a monetary contribution right now, especially since our 2020 Little House Auction must be postponed. We’re sheltering in place, so we’d prefer you click the “Donate” button to access PayPal (see sidebar), but will happily receive the check you send to our USPS address (see footer).
