Artists in Residence

Artists in Residence Program

Eight visual artists currently hold studios at the Greenbelt Community Center. You can meet the artists and shop for original fine arts and fine crafts on our open studio days. For the  current residency year, upcoming dates will include the following Sundays from 1-4pm: December 4, 2016; February  5 and June 4, 2017. Each artist also offers a community engagement activity during the year, so you may meet them at Artful Afternoons, Community Art Drop-In days and other City of Greenbelt  special events as well!
