Studio Two Three is a nonprofit art studio that gives people the space, the tools, and the classes to find that thing they love and make it.
We are Central Virginia’s only arts incubator. We feature studio facilities, classes and workshops, artist residency, and open doors. We provide 24/7 access to printing presses, darkroom, digital lab, communal workspace and individual studios to support art making and elevate voices in our community. We are professionals, amateurs, teachers and students. S23 is a place where Richmond is making its creative community and its future.
WHY ARE WE A NONPROFIT?
S23 is an arts incubator, a career builder, an economic driver, a place where community thrives. Within our walls, artists and community members work together to make art, connections and collaborations that contribute to the vibrancy and life of Richmond, Virginia.
We offer studio membership, classes, field trips and educational programming at well below market rates. Our nonprofit status enables us to secure grants and donations that keep these programs affordable and accessible for all Richmond community members.
WHERE DOES OUR FUNDING COME FROM?
We have a robust mix of earned income from our studio membership, classes, S23 To-Go, store and signature events. Earned income comprises 50-60% of our annual revenue. Generous contributions from individuals, corporations and grant funders comprise 40-50% of our annual revenue. We are committed to sustainability; our earned revenue sources provide for security and predictable income. Contributions provide for growth, capital expansion and program delivery. Donations are welcome and may be made here.
