Work Studios

The Work Studios are sponsored by The CH Foundation.

CASP is excited to announce the construction of four new Work Studios adjacent to our existing four Work Studios! These studios are possible due to generous gifts from The CH Foundation, the Helen Jones Foundation, the Welborn-Payne Endowment, Western Bank, American National Bank, and members of the Lubbock community. These 738 sq. ft. climate-controlled spaces are available for artists and arts organizations to rent for the purpose of creating and sharing work. The Work Studios can be rented with a 12-month lease at the rate of $400.00 per month, plus utilities. CASP requests its Work Studio residents commit to Open Studio hours on a weekly basis and during First Friday Art Trail events. We are thrilled to expand our creative community here at CASP!
