Supporter Levels & Benefits

Open Studio would not be possible without our generous community of supporters. Our supporters directly impact Open Studio’s ability to continue its mission of supporting artists in the creation and exhibition of contemporary print.

We operate as a charitable non-profit dedicated to offering accessible, inclusive and affordable printmaking facilities, programs and services for artists and the public from across Canada and abroad.

Impact: Support allows us to offer new learning opportunities through partnerships with organizations, like VIBE Arts, providing free education access to new generation artists from under-resourced communities.

To show our appreciation, we strive to provide a unique experience for our community of supporters and whet their appetite for the arts. Explore the fascinating medium of printmaking by becoming an Open Studio donor today, and contribute to the vibrancy of Toronto arts culture.  See our current list of supporters here.

COVID-19 Update: Please note that some donor benefits may not be available due to the ongoing pandemic.
