What is Open Studios ?
Open Studios Art tour is your opportunity to explore creativity in Santa Cruz County. For 32 years, our goal has been simple: connect artists with people who love art. For the first three weekends in October, artists from the redwoods to the bay open their studios so that friends, neighbors, and strangers from near and far can discover art in this stunning county.

If you missed the 2016 tour, but would like to take a look at the Artist Guide, you can view the Guide online.
