The Kennedy Press at Waterfall Arts is a “green” studio.  We aim to use the safest current practices with as little toxins as possible (such as using chemicals that are solvent-free). We’re happy to provide training on how to incorporate these methods into your working style.

Drop-In Rates: The studios at Waterfall Arts all have weekly open studio hours. Open studio fees are $15 per sessions. Sessions run in 3-hour segments. The Open Studio fee is the same for all or some of the 3-hour session. Open Studio hours are subject to change on a quarterly basis.  It is best to confirm hours before coming to the studio.  To check studio hours email us at info@waterfallarts or call us at 207-338-2222.

Subscriptions:  Artists can apply to have 24/7 (other than class time) access to the studios at Waterfall Arts. Cost-saving subscription rates are available for $50/month plus a one time $50 refundable key deposit. Application approval and an orientation session are required.

Studio Orientations: Studio orientations include a comprehensive review of the studio space, equipment and available resources. Subscribers and those interested in drop-in during open studio hours are recommended to attend a monthly session. Monthly orientations are scheduled with studio monitors, usually on a Wednesday from 5:30-7:30. Registration required.  See form below to register for an upcoming Studio Orientation.

Heads up! Open studio times are monitored by skilled volunteers who are there to assist but not teach.  Thank you Waterfall Arts volunteers! If you don’t feel confident working self sufficiently in this space, consider taking one of our classes, or signing up for our monthly orientations (link to orientation registration form). Open Studio monitors may close the studio after the first hour if there are no participants. Registration is advised but not necessary
