Artist at work

The mission of StudioWorks Art Collective (SWAC) is to spread creativity through education, mentoring, and the sharing of experiences.

Co-Founder, Cindy Walker, talks about the SWAC mission and vision.

StudioWorks Art Collective is a non-profit organization. SWAC was born out of a desire to support artists throughout Redlands. Our community has grown to include local artists and students from all walks of life.


Our SWAC Art Studio offers a unique approach to art students. In it, mentors and students work together as a community of artists, learning from one another as we learn about ourselves.  Rather than being told WHAT to think and create, our artists are taught HOW to think and create. Choices, goals and projects are led by the kids.  Everyone is valued for who they are and the gifts they bring with them.  

Learn. Inspire. Create. Together.
