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!

Open Studio will be closed  Weds., Dec. 25 and
reopen on Thurs., Jan., 2, 2020.

May y(our) holidays be happy and safe!

Our mission is to enhance the lives of all people in our community,
especially those who have been marginalized,
through art-making and creative social interaction in a safe environment.
