Looking for Affordable Studio Space?

We are a multi-disciplinary 6000 sq ft Fine Arts Center located in Kelowna, BC. Our mission is to develop the art community by engaging and empowering artists with hands-on initiatives that create self-sufficiency. 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. We offer visual art/design-based workshop programs, consulting services, professional art supplies, custom framing and affordable studio work space to help fine artists become successful 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.

Fine Art Studios are between $350-550/month + GST which can be used for painting, pottery, photography or as an artist’s business office. In addition to 24/7 studio space, members have access to a large shared open workspace, free parking, a 1400 sq ft workshop space, air conditioning and free internet Wi-Fi. Utilities, garbage removal, operating expenses and general maintenance of the building are subsidized in part by workshop rentals.

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 arts entrepreneurs who have a connection to the Okanagan region and are committed to improving their art practice.
