The Incubator Studios are semi-private studio spaces in larger shared environments. Each accepted artist will have a dedicated space that includes a storage box you can lock (for work in process, supplies or gear), a table, chair, power source and easel (if required). The main shared spaces will still be used for classes, member initiatives, rehearsals, other meetings and occasional events. Incubator Studios are intended for quiet, dedicated studio use.
