Studio Artist membership at The Cedars Union Annex includes both a studio rental lease and General Membership to The CU. New applications are accepted year-round for consideration. If all studios are occupied at time of acceptance, artists are put on a waiting list until requested studio space becomes available.

The studios have a micro-studio set-up with direct access to resources and benefits which range from shops, tools, artist networking opportunities, business training, and parking. Studios are available for 3-month, 6-month, or 9-month leases. Studio leases may be renewed, but requests must be submitted 1 month prior to end of current lease. Artists may renew up to 3 times and may change lease durations. Because demand is high for only a limited number of studio spaces, studio lease renewals cannot exceed 18 months in total.
