Connect. Inspire. Create.

Since 2013, Studio 550 Art Center has been bringing people together, beginners and experienced makers alike, with the common joy of creating with clay, glass, paint and pencil. 

This is a place of joy, laughter, and learning.

Located in Downtown Manchester, we believe art is for everyone, regardless of age, income, background, or self-perceived limitations. Beginners are welcome in all classes, workshops, and art events we offer. We give you the building blocks, the tools, and the space to explore and play, but it doesn’t end there!  We are here to support you, and your creations, every step of the way. 

There are 1-day workshops and 10-week classes for kids and adults, a community studio membership program for experienced potters, a new paint-your-own-handmade pottery studio, and a handmade gift shop. 

This is a place for people who

  • have not made “art” since they were kids
  • are looking to learn something new
  • are makers looking for a space to work in

Studio 550 is more than just classes. It’s a Community.
