“A fabulous instructor, gorgeous venue, wonderful staff, great fellow artists...what's not to love?”
Our gallery and workshop spaces are in the historic Benicia Arsenal in Benicia, California. The arsenal is a large area comprised of many former military buildings, and the building we inhabit is a stately brick structure built in 1878.
The Arsenal has a long history of artists working in it, including Robert Arneson and Judy Chicago (who created the Birth Project here). Continuing in this tradition, the majority of spaces in the Arsenal are now artist studios and creative businesses, who thrive in the inspirational and lofty spaces. Spend a few hours or a whole weekend with us in Benicia, where you’ll find plenty of dining options, shops and antique stores on Benicia’s waterfront First Street, just a 3 minute drive from the historic Benicia Arsenal.
