What We Do
Hot Shops is a place where ideas, dreams and what ifs are explored, created and shared. We provide classes, lectures, and demonstrations in a unique collaborative artistic environment in north downtown Omaha.
Our values are to celebrate the individual through education, inspiration and creation, providing a place to share and develop ideas and creative expressions.
At our heart, we provide makers and artists a place and opportunity to be creative, a place where they can come and see how good they can truly be.
For the public, Hot Shops lets everyone experience how the art is made; a chance to see the tools, ideas on sketchpads, scale models, mistakes and do-overs. You can feel the heat from the glass furnace, watch potters bring a lump of clay to life or the sculptor pour the molten bronze.
**Your gift during Do Good Week will help provide 300+ creative development opportunities including special programming to connect and inspire the creative community and making art instruction more accessible to all. These opportunities are led by a pool of 70+ creatives and artists who inspire, expand thinking, and communicate ideas.
