Since 1979, School 33 Art Center's Studio Artist Program has provided exceptional studio spaces to more than 120 professional artists. Nine prime spaces (approx. 450 sq. ft. each) are available to local artists. School 33 has also hosted a variety of artist residencies and programs that engage the studio artists in the Center's exhibition and educational programming. Beginning in late 2008, School 33 has initiated the Studio Artists’ Mentoring Program as a commitment to fostering artistic growth in Baltimore.
Studio leases are for one year and rental rate includes utilities. The studios are strictly non-live spaces, though artists-in-residence have 24 hour access to their individual spaces. At the end of the first year current Studio Artists may be invited to re-apply for a second and third term.
