The HAC in collaboration with the The Orange County Arts Commission and C3 Hillsborough are piloting an artist studio program to help match local artists with affordable working spaces. This first space is a raw, beautiful space located on the second floor of C3 with huge windows that will be divided into quadrants for four artists.


The spaces at C3 Hillsborough are currently full. Please fill out the form below to be considered when a spot opens in this setting. You can also explore another great studio option in Hillsborough, The Eno Mill, at


Here’s the details for C3:

  • Rent will be $300 and this includes all the benefits of a C3 membership, including 24/7 access, restrooms, coffee, WiFi and parking.

  • Hillsborough artists will be given priority, but all local artists are encouraged to apply.

  • Artists must be willing to sign a one-year lease.

  • The space is on the second floor so stairs are required.
