Qualifying for Access

To take advantage of the open studio access program, you must be a VisArts member and be certified to work in one of our studios.  

Certification is granted once you have filled out an studio access application and met with a studio manager. A skills test is required for those new to the studio space. Past students may not require full training based on their class history.

Once you’ve satisfied one or both of these requirements, you’ll receive a studio access card and your studio-specific certification will be noted in your account. You are only allowed to work in studios for which you have earned a certification.

To initiate this process, please call (804) 353-0094 or stop by our 1812 W. Main Street location and speak to a front desk associate.
