Get Creative With Round Rock Arts

Welcome and General Instructions

Welcome to our workshop page. Workshops are located in the Downtowner Gallery, located at 231 E Main Street, Ste 160, with a few exceptions. Exceptions are indicated for each class within the description.

Workshop attendees pre-register and pre-pay for class attendance unless noted otherwise. A minimum of three registered students “make” a class. Class registration is closed three days before the workshop.  These criteria provide the time needed for the artists to prepare for the expected class enrollment as many artists provide materials for their classes.

Interested in Hosting a Workshop?

We are looking for artists and creators to hold workshops in The Downtowner Art Gallery located in downtown Round Rock at 231 E. Main Street, Ste. 160. Workshops would be held between October 1- November 16, 2019 and January-June 2020. Workshops may be held anytime, including when the gallery is closed.

We have also received word that we can host workshops at the Baca Center November 25-December while the trains are in The Downtowner.

Scroll down for the form. Thanks!

We would like to offer a diversity of workshops through the year.  There is a 25% commission based on student fees.

The workshop space at the Downtowner Gallery can accommodate 5-10 students with the narrow tables we have in stock. The number of students attending depends on how much table space is needed per students. We have five student tables and one instructor table. The tables are on wheels and can be easily moved.

Cari Washburn is the workshop organizer. If you have any questions before completing the form, contact her at

Please note that the amount you are charging includes the commission. Fore example, if the rate is $100, there is a $25 commission per student. Your net would be $75.00. In general, rates start at $160 for 3, three-hour weekly consecutive classes and $60 for a three hour class offered once. We suggest you price your supplies you will charge the students for separately. We will not collect commission on supply kits.
