We are the only arts-focused makerspace in the Pikes Peak region. We form innovative partnerships with organizations that share our mission to provide an environment in which artists, tinkerers, collaborators can flourish in our community. We provide affordable studio space for artists, in addition to a membership-based makerspace.
The Manitou Art Center says YES to the community. We bring your ideas about art, creativity, and connections to life. There is a bumper sticker that states: Earth without Art is just Eh. In Manitou Springs, the Manitou Art Center is a part of our identity. Manitou Springs without the MAC, a thirty-two-year-old organization, would be difficult to comprehend.
The MAC needs you! If you have a skill to share, please consider offering a class or program at the Art Center. In addition, we always need more fans, ventilation, and heavy equipment.
Did you know that the average artist makes less than $20,000 per year? Our creatives need an affordable, accessible space to inspire all of us in uncertain times.
“Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE my studio? The MAC is where it's AT, y'all. IN LOVE.” — Jannine Scott
