As we launch now our fourth pilot of an arts residency teaching program, there is a collective sense of hope that we are emerging from a dark time, as well as facing challenges still to overcome. These workshops are fundamentally about refreshing and renewing the human spirit, to help us all engage and reengage in our world. 

Classes are mostly in a hybrid model, taking place in a mixture of online and outdoors with social distancing. As COVID conditions improve and regulations change we hope to increase in-person instruction.​

Special thanks to the Hazen Family Foundation for their support to develop this program and provide scholarship funds.

The Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative works to maintain the CAW as a "blank canvas" for as wide a diversity of arts uses and users as possible, providing space and collaborating with project initiators to make their ideas a success for the benefit of the broader community, and supporting and cultivating collaborations between artists and arts organizations, community groups, the business community, non-profit organizations and the entire community.

During COVID, we have been used for many film and photography projects, and as well as small workshops. As COVID restrictions open up we look forward to a return to many performances, community discussions, classes, and many other uses.
