Messy Arts Space
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!
Student groups can reserve one slot for up to 3-hours per week for the current quarter.
Open reservations can be made starting at 12am each Thursday for the following week Monday-Sunday. The requests will be on first come-first serve basis. You will receive a reply to your request within 2 business days.
Reservation requests can be made through the link below the room descriptions.
For events and exhibits, please see the reservation request link below.
The Rehearsal/Performance Studio is a flexible space, equipped with a full sound system, projector, screen and theatrical lights. It features movable mirrors and a flexible wall system for visual art exhibitions.
We also have a green screen/photo background system with lights for photo shoots in the studio.
Jam and record in the Music Room! The music room features an electric drum kit, electric keyboard, and electric guitar. The two-person recording booth is equipped with Ableton recording software.
A training session with one of our specialists is required to use the recording booth. Just drop in during our open times and talk to our staff.
The meeting room is ideal for smaller brainstorming or writing sessions. It also features a small screen to allow preview screenings.
The meeting room can also double a smaller installation room for pre-approved visual arts exhibits.
For performances or art shows involving an invited or paying audience, or needing a reservation that spans more that the usual rehearsal time, please use the reservation request for events and exhibits.
