Jen Tough Gallery



We offer online and in-person workshops for artists of all levels, from aspiring to professional artists, taught by the country’s best artist-instructors.

Our beautiful workshop space is a few steps from our gallery in the historic Benicia Arsenal. The arsenal is a large area comprised of many former military buildings, and the building we inhabit is a stately brick structure built in 1878. The Arsenal has a long history of artists working in it, including Robert Arneson and Judy Chicago. Continuing in this tradition, the majority of spaces in the Arsenal are now artist studios, who thrive in the inspirational and lofty spaces. Spend a few hours or a whole weekend with us in Benicia, where you’ll find plenty of dining options, shops and antique stores on Benicia’s waterfront First Street, just a 3 minute drive from the historic Benicia Arsenal.
