Located in the heart of the Mount Airy Village, we are proud neighbors to Weaver’s Way Co-op, The Nesting House, Wild Hand and the High Point Café.  We are thrilled to contribute to the fabric of this special Philly neighborhood through the arts.

Getting here is easy, just head up Lincoln Drive from Center City, turn left onto McCallum Street, cross Westview Street then turn left onto Carpenter Lane.

There is on-street parking throughout the neighborhood, without timed parking or meters. Enjoy your tree-lined stroll to the studio!
