Studio Works–a place to create–enabling your imagination.

Studio Works offers inspiring studio space plus all of the “extras” to artists and creative professionals at a low, affordable price. Located in the Schmid Innovation Center in the Dubuque Millwork Distsrict, Studio Works also provides a learning environment for youth and adults, and community space for various events to promote the creative development of local artists.  Educational programming complements and enhances programs currently available in the area. Studio Works provides a place for its member and the community to share ideas, equipment and their individual experiences. Support of local artists is vital to the growth of Dubuque, its people, and the Millwork District as a model diverse, expressive and sustainable community.
