Looking for Affordable Studio Space?

We are a multi-disciplinary 3000 sq ft Fine Arts Center located in Kelowna, BC. Our mission is to develop the art community by engaging and empowering artists with affordable professional studio space, visual art/design-based workshop programs, consulting services, professional art supplies and custom framing. We utilize a mentor-apprentice model that prepares artists, emerging or professional to develop their art and design skills as a pathway to entrepreneurship and self-sufficiency in the art world.

The mission of Ellis Art Studios is to provide quality affordable studio space and programs to emerging and established artists who have demonstrated a commitment to the Okanagan Region. We provide the serious artist and passionate beginner an opportunity to study with accomplished artists through an “Atelier” environment. Students acquire the skills necessary to inject their work with sound craftsmanship, convincing technique and visual authority.

Our studios are $450 per month + GST which can be used for painting, textiles, photography or as a creative business office.  In addition to 24/7 access, members have a large shared open workspace, free street parking, air conditioning and high speed Wi-Fi.  Utilities, garbage removal, operating expenses and general maintenance of the building are subsidized by our workshop programming.  Residents also receive 5 free hours per month to book our classroom space if they want to host workshops and events.  

Studios are available to artists, 19 years of age or older, who demonstrate professional experience and commitment in their genre. We welcome artists from all disciplines, arts-related start-up businesses, and creative entrepreneurs who are committed to improving their small business.  Our studio is a safe space and is an 2SLGBTQ+ friendly organization and encourages acceptance for all gender identities.
