We are the hub for artists and creatives of all ages, offering accessible, low-cost or free art classes that foster creativity and growth.

This summer, give your child the gift of creativity and self-expression.

REGISTER NOW for our Art Camp and let the fun begin!

We offer two locations in Connecticut, the Dirt Salon in Hartford and the NEST Arts Factory in Bridgeport, that serve as creative spaces with fully equipped art studios. These spaces host a variety of art-related events such as classes, workshops, exhibitions, and open studio hours. They are also the birthplace of RiseUP for Art's public art projects.

The Art Club is a network of Connecticut creatives coming together to transform and grow the creative economy in Connecticut, TOGETHER. 

At The Studio you will find creative workshops for all ages, the space and tools to create on your own, and we host Art Exhibits and Shows for local artists. 

Both our Hartford and Bridgeport locations of The Studio CT are ideal to host small to medium size events, exhibits, parties, or shows for an intimate crowd.  

Art is for everyone! Our needs-based scholarship fund is here to help.

Allyson, Workshop Attendee 

"July 27th is usually one of my hardest days in the year, but this year I was able to turn my emotions into a beautiful Art piece. A portrait of my Angels. For the process It was so different from painting, we used some cool materials and and had a blast throughout the process.  I'm so obsessed with it. Thank you Jules, like always your Talent and amazing Energy always comes through in everything that you do."
