Up next: Artist Gym Extravaganza · August 19 · 7–9 pm
Let's celebrate the Artist Gym community! Our third annual Artist Gym Extravaganza will include food, drinks, and friends, all while we play together and explore creativity together. We're going for 50% exciting, stimulating, and meaningful exploration, and 50% celebration with a bunch of really cool artists. Join us!
Artist Gym is Electric Eye Ensemble’s once-a-month creation and creativity workshop for those looking to bring artistic practice into their daily lives. Spend an afternoon playing, exploring and making theater with us! Each Gym is themed, and exercises center around the investigation of that theme. Part playground, part devising workshop, part networking event, Artist Gym is dedicated to creating a community of diverse individuals who value collaboration and art-making in New York City.
In the works:

“Thank you for bringing together a community of artists. I think art is about more than just the performance, it’s about thinking about the world and the context we make our art in. Artist Gym gives room for questioning our values and perception, which creates art that’s more current and more vital.”
“I had a great time meeting and playing with all the artists and artistically inclined.”
“Artist Gym is a fantastic resource that I haven’t seen or experienced elsewhere — the opportunity for artists and non-artists alike to come together in a low pressure environment and partake in the joy of creation.”
“Thank you for the gift of space and intention … it is rare to find a time and place to play with a willing community of people.”
Artist Gym is produced by the Artist Gym Committee, a group of volunteer leaders who act as ambassadors for Artist Gym, grow the sense of community, steer improvements, and produce the workshops each month. The 2016–2017 Artist Gym Committee is comprised of Julia Corrigan, Olivia Luna, and Andrew Murdock.
