Your Creative Community

Wheelhouse Studios in the Memorial Union

A big part of the college experience is the friends you will meet throughout your academic journey and stay in touch with later on in life. It is also important to find inspiration – whether it’s collaborating with others in a student organization, living with other creatives, or expanding your artistic learning.

It is up to you to create your own experience from the countless opportunities available to you. Choose from 100+ student organizations in the arts or start your own. Get involved with other creatives at the Wisconsin Union Directorate (WUD), the student programming and leadership board for the Wisconsin Union, where students organize, promote, and execute some of the best experiences and events you can get outside the classroom from curating art galleries to scouting and booking live music acts. At Wheelhouse Studios you can take short-term classes or take advantage of drop-in studios including 2D or 3D spaces and ceramics.


“I chose to pursue a degree at Madison because of the atmosphere and opportunities offered at the university. I want to experience everything that college has to offer and be able to focus on what I love doing.”
– Danielle Mohr, BS Art Education, 2017
