At Art 145 LLC, we believe an individual can make a positive impact on the world, and that it starts with creative self expression. We also believe that to achieve positive change, connecting with others is necessary. We help cultivate a community that encourages creativity, compassion, and action.
Located in the scenic Tonto National Forest, Art 145 LLC operates a public studio space, art classes for adults and children, and soon an Artist in Residence program. We promote a collaborative community, foster new work and intellectual exchange, and provide artists with exposure to our unique town. We are a hub for creative people to experiment, learn new mediums, and improve their craft.
Our studio spaces for creative people of all ages are rapidly growing, and currently include specialty tools and materials for mediums such as sewing, knitting, and photography; popular materials such as canvas, charcoal, and oil pastels; and of course crafting materials such as rotary cutters, hot melt glue, and scrapbooking paper. All types of art are encouraged, and we love adding new tools and materials as we see interest.
There are many ways to get involved at Art 145. The best way to immerse yourself in the arts is to sign up for one of our memberships where you get free studio time, and special discounts. The biggest perk for becoming a member is exclusive access to our studio, which will help you not only find a positive environment to work on your craft, but you will make lifetime connections with other members. If you have any questions or suggestions, contact us, we would love to hear from you!
