Become a Studio Monitor

We look for studio monitors with demonstrated skills in a specific medium who would be comfortable monitoring the studio and safely operating equipment/tools in that studio.

Studio monitors help us maintain our open studio program. They:

  • Unlock and lock studios, studio storage and special equipment
  • Check people in and out of the studio
  • Help orient people to the studio
  • Monitor the use of equipment
  • Reinforce safety procedures and best practices
  • Clean the studio, ensuring it’s returned to “studio neutral” after use
  • Help VisArts’ studio coordinators, as needed

Studio monitors volunteer in the studio of their choice for at least five hours per week, and in exchange they earn:

  • One free class per session (for use during the session in which they volunteer or the session immediately following it)
  • Free open studio access during the session in which they volunteer

We ask that studio monitors commit to volunteering for at least one complete, 11-week session. Weekly hours will remain the same throughout the session but may fluctuate session by session. Questions about our studio monitor program? Contact Sophie Treppendahl at [email protected]
