Push/Pull is hard to define. It usually comes down to "art space". We're a cooperative business with a nonprofit programming division. Our nonprofit programming includes, but is never limited to, professional adult artistic education, teen art and comic classes, cultural exploration through cinema, minority artist community support groups, and community art events. We strive to support our artistic and cultural needs in the community and to adapt to those changing needs.

Program Highlights:
Free Teen Art Comic & Fine Art Classes - every week (and three times a week during the summer) we meet with teens 13 to 18. Our teachers are art & comic professionals. We provide teachers with fair wages, students with materials and snacks and do it all with the support of the community!

Qu-Art - it's our Queer Art Night! Once a month we invite all creative queer people to join together to make art and give each other support.

Community Classes - Our crafting, screen printing, embroidery and Shrink Nights aren't just about having fun, they're about bringing artists together with the community. When the community connects personally with artists we all benefit. Creative activities support innovative thinking and reduce stress!

Professional Art Skills Workshops - Professional artists sharing their skills to move more of their peers from 'emerging' to 'established'. Our classes are based on the feedback of local artists and what they want to learn - and who they want to learn it from.
Push/Pull wouldn't be possible without our hardworking members that keep us going.
