Our first process and creative arts space located in The Hamptons, NY – where creativity, art, and exploration will be at the center of everything we do.

Shine’s custom, signature classes and workshops for children, previously only presented in pop-up fashion, are now available at The Shine Studio. Featuring 3 large studios, an indoor and outdoor cafe area, gardens, an outdoor play space that includes a classroom and stage, and direct access to the Long Pond Greenbelt trails, the possibilities for this amazing new space are endless.

We are excited to partner with them on joint programming and help to foster their mission of bringing accessible and inclusive arts programming to the East End. Check out their classes taking place at the Studio and sign up now!

Our New Building

Located in Bridgehampton, NY, The Shine Studio offers outdoor and indoor spaces for a wide range of our signature activities. The space was renovated by a team of craftsmen from Benenaula Construction, a Hamptons local construction company, who worked with us on every detail to make our space inviting, functional, beautiful, and modern. It is truly a dream come true and we can’t wait to have you!

Last but certainly not least, we have to say a huge ‘thank you’ to UUCSF for hosting us and providing such a wonderful space for our programming. We can’t stop thinking of the endless possibilities to come from this new collaboration.
