About Our Studios:
Two new open-plan artist studios are situated on the first floor of the newly re-furbished Roscommon Arts Centre, nestled between the workshop space and the auditorium. The studio facilities aim to provide artists with a supportive environment in which they can develop their practice, research and create new work and engage with other practitioners and the public.
A third space has also been made available, located in the old workshop space.
Studios are open plan and equipped with desk, chair and a sink. Toilet facilities are located throughout the building. The studio spaces are conveniently located so that artists delivering workshops and/or using the auditorium have ease of access to both. There is also wi-fi in the studio spaces and a Mac with access to image editing software (Adobe Premiere, Photoshop, InDesign). The artists’ studios are working spaces only and are not residential.
The third workshop studio includes mirrors, drapes and a toilet facility.
