The Basement Community Art Studio is a working art studio and creative maker space, located in the heart of downtown Knoxville. We are open to the public with many opportunities to create.  We offer a variety of art experiences including Art Classes for infants through adults, walk in  Open Studio  sessions where you can follow your own creative path, Private Parties, and special workshops/events led by local artists. We honor the artist in every individual regardless of age or skill level. Would you like to know a bit more about the people behind the studio?
