What we're about

Third Haus is a creative hub that encourages people of all ages to hone in on their childlike creativity. We believe in the value of learning to envision new realities, as it is the foundation through which we can make progress as a society.

We view all people as creative beings and whether you are a professional artist by trade, or want to explore different forms of creative expression for the first time, we have a place for you here.

We are a safe, inclusive space that encourages failure and imperfection, patience, discipline, and commitment. The studio is exploratory in nature, creating an environment in which people of all ages can be met where they are, but also pushed beyond their comfort zones.

Our events are for those who want to come together and create. We will have sessions for vocal expression, musical expression, bodily expression, and visual expression. We host events and workshops in our own 4000 sqft creative studio in the Mission District, which has been a loving energy and positive force for all those who wander in.

Creative Sign & Letter to your Local Representative (BYOB)

Hosted by Ryan De La Hoz, this is a 2-hour session of creative sign making and letter writing! Discuss and pen letters to your representatives about topics you care about in a group setting with a creative flair to promote real change on a local level. It is truly "art with a message." Sometimes the best way to get your idea and opinion across is with a handmade creative sign and message to an individual. Think street art, protest art, signs for marches, inspirational posters, and political posters on a small scale that will be mailed to the representative along with a letter. Sign/Poster making and letter writing is the perfect way to express a specific idea and show the powers that be how you feel. In this workshop we will be using mixed media such as pens, pencils, paint, markers, and cut-paper to bring your ideas and slogans to life. No prior sign making, art making, or letter writing experience is required! Share your opinion and transform it into a mini creative sign/poster and short letter. After the workshop Third Haus will mail them to the local congressman or woman for you. SCHEDULE: 6:00 - 6:15pm Get settled and chat with your fellow makers. Discuss details on a few local issues. 6:15pm - 6:30pm Come up with a slogan and/or visual and begin sketching it onto your mini poster/sign. 6:30 - 8:00pm Complete your mini creative sign and write a short letter to your representative. Third Haus will then send the letter to the congressman or congresswoman. NO WORRIES IF YOU ARE LATE: Just come in and get to work! WHAT TO BRING: Materials are included. All you need is an idea/opinion! BYOB: Feel free to bring food and drinks to enjoy!

Creative Session: Music Producers

Third Haus

Come hang out for a 1.5 hour session of producing music! Making music can be a very isolating experience for most producers, so why not mix that up? Bring your laptop and a pair of headphones and work on your music in a room full of peers, we don’t care if you’ve been doing it for years or just started last week. Share your music with the rest of the group (if you want to, no pressure) and get real time feedback from other musicians in your neighborhood! The idea is to start a new piece of music (be it a beat, song, or whatever you want) and try to get it as close as possible to completion within an hour. Are you up for the challenge? SCHEDULE: 6pm - Get settled, chat with your fellow producers 6:15pm - Start a new track and work on it for an hour (props to you if you finish it) 7:15 - Share your work, receive and give feedback 7:30 - Session ends DON’T WORRY IF YOU’RE LATE: Just come in and get to work! WHAT TO BRING: Laptop, headphones, good vibes.
