Be a Live Artist!

FLAX has an established in-store Live Artist program to support local artists. If you are an art student to an accomplished professional, with an interest in sharing your talents, we welcome you!

Just think of our Oakland store as an extension of your studio. We have an easel and taboret for your use, and you get the benefit of a new environment to stimulate your creativity. Your participation provides a great energy in the store and our customers gain inspiration from watching you, while you gain exposure of your artistic gifts and artwork.

Bring your promotional postcards for customers to take away, and even offer some finished pieces of art to sell (no commission taken). We promote your visit via email and social media, post it on the FLAX Canvas (our blog), and have in-store signs in the weeks leading up to the event.  We want you to find happiness and success in your artistic pursuits!

The best participation time is mid to late afternoon on Saturday or Sunday, with a working time from two to four hours. To schedule a date/time or to ask questions, please Contact Us.
