Open Studios Art Tour


The San Luis Obispo County Open Studios Art Tour, a program of SLO County Arts Council, takes place over two weekends in October each year. Free to the public, fine artists and crafters open their studios to showcase their art and share their process. Visitors create their own self-guided tour using the downloadable catalog.  We will be doing a combination of in person and online this year.  We plan to develop a catalog for visitors to print at home and we also plan to develop an online directory for artists on our website.

First Weekend – October 9 & 10, 2021

Second Weekend – October 16 & 17, 2021

COVID-19 Protocol: 

We’re hopeful that by October we’ll be able to come together in-person again one way or another, so we’re moving forward with plans for the 2021 Open Studios Art Tour. Throughout the year, if needed, we will make adjustments to the Tour and planned gatherings based on guidelines from our County Health Department. If adjustments are necessary, we will work with all of you to ensure that both you and the visiting public can stay safe during the Tour.
