Bay Area Art Workshops in the Historic Benicia Arsenal

“The space was lovely to work in. It was a very productive, intense, wonderful weekend. I was sorry to see it end!”


“Excellent instruction and I’m excited about the possibilities unlocked over the course of the workshop. I’ll be mining them for years to come.”

“I have been to many workshops and the standout value of this one was sharing the space with so many good artists”

“A fabulous instructor, gorgeous venue, wonderful staff, great fellow artists...what's not to love?”

Join us in one of the many inspirational spaces of the historic Benicia Arsenal, located in the Bay Area of California. Benicia is a quaint waterfront town within a short driving distance of San Francisco and the Napa Valley.

Our workshops are held in our project space or in a lofty ballroom inside the Arsenal, close to our gallery/exhibition space. Exposed brick, 18 foot ceilings, arched doorways and a leafy courtyard with fountain create a tranquil and inspirational space where it’s easy for participants to relax and focus on their creativity.

We provide free coffee, tea and bottled water throughout your time with us, and plenty of dining options, hotels and B&B’s are a short 2 minute drive away.
