Central School Project is a non-profit arts cooperative which owns and operates the CSP community arts center in Old Bisbee. The Members pay member fees for an affordable studio in a historic facility. There are currently 20 artist-members in the organization working in a variety of forms: painters, woodworking, printmaking, sculpture, jewelry-making, and graphic art to name a few.


As a member of the cooperative, board members need to be considerate of each other, be committed to the organizational goals, and are required to meet several obligations:

  • A minimum of 35 volunteer hours per year (more depending on square footage of studio) are required that are put towards maintenance of the arts center and participating in Project events and programs.  

  • Board meeting attendance

  • Fundraising efforts

About CSP - Incorporated in 1985, our mission is to provide affordable studio space for working artists; preserve the historic Central School building as a cultural center; and foster appreciation of the arts in the community.
