Located in downtown Albuquerque, OFFCenter Community Arts Project is a non-profit supporting and celebrating creativity in all its forms. Everyone is welcome to come create, connect, and learn!
We’re open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday noon to 3 pm. You can drop off donations on Monday and Tuesday. Workgroups are Monday. Classes are Tuesday.
Open Studio is Wednesday and Thursdays, noon to 3 pm.  If you’d like to reserve the space for a private group, please email info@offcenterarts.org
As of July 28, we are once again requiring masks be worn, out of an abundance of caution and a commitment to the well being of all.
Did You Know? OFFCenter was founded as an Art Hive in 2001. Since then, we’ve provided free space, supplies, and support to thousands of people from all walks of life to connect and create.

“Not many places can you be who you dream to be. In this studio, freedom isn’t a word, it’s a way of life.”  – OC Participant

This class is for new or beginner level screen printers or intermediate screen printers who want to learn about building/ using a DIY setup. No experience necessary. Sliding scale payment 0-$25.

ICYMI. Due to rising COVID cases and the increased danger of the Delta variant, we’ll not be holding the We Art the People event on Saturday, September 25. Instead, the theme of our November birthday party will be We ART the PEOPLE! and we’ll still have a souvenir poster. More details as they develop.
