atelier gugging

The atelier gugging is an open studio for anyone whishing to try out their artistic vein.

Based on years of experience at the House of Artists, it specifically doesn’t require any quality standards or artistic know-how. The point is to work unencumbered, try out new ideas and bravely develop one’s personal shape language.

Thus, the Gugging Artists have worked here for 10 years in a friendly atmosphere side by side with creative guests from Austria and abroad.

We invite

  • People with or without a psychiatric background or special needs, who wish to work on their ideas independently
  • Persons with special needs requiring more containment, i.e. personal care, can work at the studio within a “daily structure/day care” programme.
  • People in need of personal care who bring their care-giver along.


We offer

  • A space to work freely and tap into one’s personal creative potential.
  • Various painting and drawing material. Of course, you may also bring and use your own material.
  • Studio employees for questions, support and feedback
