L.a. Studio was founded in order to give local and visiting artists a place to concentrate on projects in a comfortable, collaborative, and creative space.
We are located in the renovated historic St. Mary's catholic school building in Patton, PA, an old clay works and timbering town located in the Appalachian Mountains, surrounded by hiking and biking trails, and a 15-minute drive from Prince Gallitzin State Park.
Our space offers 12-foot high ceilings, large 7-foot windows, a kiln and throwing wheels, stained glass equipment, a full wood shop, and plenty of open and spacious studio space with natural daylight to fuel artists of any discipline. Newly renovated, spacious, and eclectic apartments for artists in residence are conveniently located above the studios, on the second floor.
Our programming ranges from individual or group classes to long-term artist residencies in almost any media.
The ART14-Residency Program
A play on our local area code (814), L.a. Studio’s new ART14 creative residency is a haven for artists looking for a peaceful and spacious place to explore their art. Learn about the program on our 'ART14 - Residency' page!
Community Classes & Events

Visiting artists are encouraged to provide workshops to the local community during their stay, in their chosen field, as well as exhibit work and works in progress created during their stay.
Additionally, we occasionally host local artists who are interested in facilitating classes for our community.

CREATE Sessions are assisted work sessions that offer opportunities to bring your own ideas and explore your interests in ceramics, stained glass, 3D printing, wood working, and/or any of the other activities L.a. Studio has to offer, alongside our staff! These sessions are meant to be unstructured, self-directed, and independent, while our team is available to offer support, guidance, and supervision for safety.
