Messy Arts Space

2016_ARTS Welcome Reception-28

The Messy Arts Space is a drop-in creative maker space. Drawing, painting and other creative activities are encouraged. We have easels, drying racks, a light board, cutting mats and a limited amount of art supplies (paints, brushes, oil pastels, charcoal, small canvases and paper). We allow oil painting at all times (when we are open) - we supply turpentine but no oil paints.

The space also has a 3D Printer and Vinyl Cutter, which are both free of charge to all Stanford students. More equipment will be added soon - come by and check it out!
