Classes and open studio hours are CANCELED until further notice. Pro-rated refunds for pottery classes will be issued.
We have received many calls asking to have works wrapped and kept moist during the closure. Unfortunately, with the countywide shelter in place in effect, and the large number of works in progress on the studio shelves, we will not be able to accommodate these requests. We regret this will result in some student works drying out during the closure. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
Work on your painting, drawing and pottery projects surrounded by other artists during Open Studio sessions at Sunnyvale's Creative Arts Center. Open Studio provides access to equipment, as well as the opportunity to collaborate with other artists. No formal instruction is provided.
