We Invite You to Join the Bothwell Family! Since we opened our doors in 2006 ... The Bothwell Arts Center has been an arts incubator, offering affordable and rentable classroom, rehearsal, performance, event, and studio rental space for artists, musicians, theatrical, acting, choral, and other individuals and groups with a cultural arts focus. 

Over 40,000 people have benefited from classes, workshops, performances and events at the Bothwell Arts Center, from children to adults. Frequent renters include Sycamore Strings Academy, Livermore Opera, Livermore Amador Symphony, Jazz Labb and many others. The Bothwell is home to regular visual and performing arts teachers and students, and ongoing dance programs.
