What is the Chicken Coop?

It all began with a group of local artists and their desire to unite the towns in the river valley and provide a creative outlet for our community and our visitors. Thanks to ORA and The Crawford Center, we have secured a studio space that will host workshops, events and provide open studio time for those who wish to have a space to create. Through much effort and planning we are proud to open the Chicken Coop Studio 306 to the public.

Week of Giving 2018 - March 19-23

Please join us for Bridge Builders Community Foundations Week of Giving. Chicken Coop - Studio 306 has set a goal of raising $3000 during this week. These funds will help us to achieve two of our dreams for 2018 by allowing us to expand our children's programs and offer a new Women's Outdoor Series.

Donations can be made here: bbcfgives.org Thank you for your support!

The studio has beautiful natural light filtering through the massive windows nearly covering one entire wall. It also offers a cozy nook with couch and chairs for knitting, crocheting or just taking a break. Next to the nook is a small refreshment area with coffee, tea and water. A refrigerator and microwave allow you to bring your own food.

Educational and children's programs are also very important to us. Sara Black, a Core Member, is a GEMS facilitator and will be bringing a chapter of this wonderful program to our valley.
