Case Studies

The Clay Studio offers ceramics classes, workshops and sells ceramic arts from well-known artists around the country. To grow, it needed to offer online class registrations, memberships and art sales. Art Center Canvas converted registrant, member and class data stored in FileMaker Pro to its cloud-based application, enabling customers and members to easily register for classes and workshops online. Online transactions for classes, membership and the sale of artwork were $110,000 in the first full year using Art Center Canvas. The number of classes registered increased by 27% adding 500 additional classes registrations from the prior year. The Clay Studio also had a record number of new members -- 50% more than last year. It is amazing how online sales dominates revenue generation. In the first year, revenue from online class registrations was 33% of the total registration revenue. Today, 67% of class registration revenue is from online sales. Since taking class administration online, The Clay Studio has nearly tripled the number of class registrations and doubled its class registration revenue. Art Center Canvas has enabled The Clay Studio to scale its operations for phenomenal growth.

Jennifer Martin, Executive Director The Clay Studio

Art Center Canvas has worked closely with Perkins Center for the Arts to make improvements and updates that have added an incredible amount of efficiency to the way we do business. If your business is in the arts and you use multiple platforms to make it happen, Art Center Canvas can help you make things easier.

Diane A. Felcyn, Associate Director Perkins Center for the Arts

Art Center Canvas has changed the way we run our organization. We used to run separate applications and databases for fundraising, exhibitions, student registrations and accounting. Now everything happens in one place, reducing staff time, and allowing the entire team to have access to our customer/participant information. The staff at AAC are incredibly responsive - creating reports as needed for organization’s specific information, and support issues. I can’t imagine how we could do what we do without ACC!

Catherine Hoke, Executive Director Peninsula School of Art

“Streamlined administration”
“We use Art Center Canvas to manage online registration and streamline administration at three art centers. It’s centralized our entire operation. After researching a lot of national companies out there that say they will do all that this software does, we made the right decision. I absolutely recommend it.”

Jill Markowitz, Founder & Director Philly Art Center

We chose to work with Art Center Canvas because they specialize in serving art organizations. Our workshop registration process is fully integrated with our website, and when we redesigned our site last year, the ACC folks were deeply involved with our developers so that everything ran smoothly at the launch. We appreciate that ACC provides flexibility to grow and change as our needs grow and change; we wouldn’t find that personal approach with a larger company.
