Satellite Location Spotlight on Brazee Street Studios

The Art Academy is proud to partner with instructors Sandy Caruso and Barbara Coe at their studio on Brazee Street!

Brazee Street Studios is an artist community housing over 25 professional artist studios, Brazee Street School of Glass, and gallery One One. Located in Oakley’s growing arts district, Brazee Street Studio’s building is the renovation of Oakley Tool and Die, a factory in operation from 1930-1980. Brazee Studios is a 21,000 sq ft solar-powered LEED Silver Certified building, running cleanly off renewable resources.
