Open Studio Volunteers can participate by helping with the production of Ben’s Bells ornaments and Kindness Coins that serve as symbols of kindness in our communities.

Volunteers can drop in without a reservation in parties of 5 or less at our Main Gate, Phoenix, and Connecticut studios. View our locations and hours.


Main Gate Tucson:

We ask that drop-ins volunteer for at least an hour, and that volunteers do not come in with less than 45 minutes before closing. We have a suggested $5 donation per person which helps fund our kindness education and studio programming. However, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.


Our open studio times are Wednesday through Saturday, 10am-6pm. You can drop in and stay as long as you like to help us with whatever we are working on – usually clay, painting, or assembly. There are no reservations needed for groups of 5 or less and no fee – just a $5 per person suggested donation.


Individuals or groups of 5 or less are welcome to drop in Tuesdays through Thursdays from 12pm-8pm, or Saturdays from 10am-2pm. There is a $5 per person donation suggested but not enforced. Participants will help with any project the studio manager is currently working on, but they can expect to contribute to the art that we distribute to spread kindness in the community!

Groups of 6 or more: please book a group experience!
