Art Space is a working art studio, and a community of artists. We are diverse in our interests, talents and experience. Keyholders have an extraordinary opportunity to share in contributing and benefiting from this ever-evolving group of artists.

You will have access to the facilities 24 hours per day / 7 days a week as your studio, and a small amount of space to store some supplies and works in progress. Studio access may not be available to you during scheduled class times.

Art Space Keyholder Members develop and run a dynamic and diverse class schedule. You will have access to all classes at a reduced membership price.

You will be a voting member of South Padre Island Art Space, helping to grow, direct and support art and Art Space in our community. Voting members also elect Art Space Board of Directors
