The Art Center, established in 1993 with support from the City Council of Redwood City, is dedicated to promoting visual art within the local community.
The Art Center of Redwood City and San Carlos has 33 studios with room for 33 to 40 artists.
Resident artists work in many mediums, including drawing, painting, Chinese calligraphy, murals, mixed media, assemblage, photography, book arts, film, and jewelry design.
We seek to encourage and attract artists of all ages and talents and offer classes in many disciplines to both children and adults. Click here for information on tuition scholarship.
"Thank you for a wonderful open house experience yesterday. I spoke with you and several of the center's artists during my visit. Everyone was delightfully open and enthusiastic and didn't seem to mind spending time chatting with a 73 year old retired guy who is just discovering how rewarding it can be to do artwork." -- K. Perkins
"I can't thank you enough for [the Art Center/Art In Action collaborative event}, it was really a success.... the artists were so welcoming and and everyone seemed to have a great time. What great exposure for the kids to a real artist studio and real artists! The artists were so generous with their time and encouraging to the students. And what a nice spread--we really were impressed." -- K. O'Connor
We are constantly looking to support artists and collaborate in our community. If you have an idea you'd like to share or some art related assistance you think we might be able to provide, please let us know.
