Vernon Community Arts Centre

Studio Drop-In

For those who wish to work independently on their own projects and at their own pace, the Vernon Community Arts Centre provides studio drop in sessions. Studio drop in is an opportunity for individuals to interact and collaborate with other like-minded artisans. All drop-in users must be current Arts Council of the North Okanagan (ACNO) members, with the exception of our one time Guest Pass. Click Member Application and Benefits for more information or call us at 250-542-6243 to learn more.

Tuesdays 9:30 am – 12:30 pm
Fridays 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

Clay and Glass Studio Drop In

Take time to develop your skills. Clay & glass drop in is open to ACNO members whenever studios are not in use by a class. For safety reasons, those who have never experienced glass or clay must take a qualifying level class before being eligible for drop-in.  For people who have recent experience in glass or clay, but have never used the Arts Centre studios before, you may be able to arrange an orientation for a small fee.  This orientation helps us ensure you are familiar with our space and studio guidelines, and helps our studio tech asses your proficiency to ensure proficiency before starting drop-ins. Interested in learning more about clay & glass? Check out the classes we offer.

Adult Drop-In Fee (per 3 hour session): $6.30
Youth Drop-In Fee (per 3 hour session): $4.00

Printmaking Studio Drop In

Take time to further your skills on your own schedule.  Print Studio Drop-in is open to ACNO members whenever the studio is not in use by a class. For safety reasons, those who have never used the printing press must take a qualifying class before being eligible for drop-in. For those who are experienced with a press, but have never used the VCAC print studio before, a orientation can be arranged to ensure you are familiar with our studio policies while helping our Studio Technicians assess your understanding of the printmaking process before starting drop-ins.
