The 2023 South Sound Studio Tour is an all-volunteer event that provides the public with the opportunity to see how artists create works of beauty. Meet artists “in the wild” of their own studios to learn how they work, see the materials and techniques used, and to discuss what inspires creativity.

Join this FREE self-guided tour of 25 artist studios featuring the work of over 75 artists.

Saturday, April 29 and Sunday April 30 11:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.


Thurston County holds a wealth of creativity and talent. An annual Olympia Studio Tour will educate the region about art and artist’s processes. It will promote unity among local artists and expose the public to the value that art contributes to one’s life. We seek to develop a community of artists working together to demonstrate to the City of Olympia the possibilities of a thriving artist community, in hopes of encouraging government support to raising the possibilities of our community through the arts.
