The Borrego Art Institute is a nonprofit organization that’s here to inspire and enrich the Borrego Springs community. People come here to experience, create, and enjoy all art forms — from pottery to gardening, painting to photography. Our distinctive campus features the Gallery and the ArtPark gardens as well as an off-campus pottery studio. The BAI is a community resource and gathering place and a major supporter of adult and children’s education, participation and art appreciation. Please join us for classes, workshops, shows, and other events, and become a member. Whether you are an artist, a Borrego Springs resident, a visitor, an art lover, or simply a curious explorer, we look forward to welcoming you!
OPENING ON OCTOBER 2ND
The Art of Flora and Fauna
Artistic work in a variety of mediums celebrating the wonderful plants and animals of our world. From the beginning of time, nature has been mankind’s muse when creating art. Its nurturing, enriching cycle of life is an endless inspiration for artists.

The relaxing environment in our pottery studio encourages creative freedom. You’ll get inspired by being with others who love what they are doing.
The Summer Months Ahead
Ours is an outdoor studio, which is wonderful to work at on a beautiful day in Borrego Springs. But, when it gets hot, working there becomes challenging. Even so, we'll make sure the studio is accessible to members. You can still purchase clay, and use the slab roller and extruder, and limited firings will continue when we have cooler nights.
Rent a WheelThe pottery studio has several Shimpo VL Lite wheels available to rent for $75 per month during the very hot summer months. At 50 pounds each, they are relatively easy to move.
We’re planning a full calendar of classes and workshops for the 2021/2022 season.
