Accessibility

The Kala Gallery & Community Classroom is wheelchair accessible. There are ramps at the San Pablo Avenue entrance and through the back parking lot that is shared with Orchard Supply Hardware. Enter the parking lot from Ashby Ave between San Pablo and 9th. Use the loading dock ramp on the far South side of the parking lot, closest to Outdoor Supply Hardware and Looking Glass Photo.

The Kala Printmaking Studio is wheelchair accessible. There is a ramp and elevator at the back parking lot. From Heinz Ave heading west, turn left on 9th street (across from Berkeley Bowl West), then take another left into our parking lot. Our loading dock is on the north side of the lot (closest to where you entered). Take the ramp to the freight elevator. The Kala Printmaking studio is on the 3rd floor.  For weekend and weeknight elevator access, please call our offices 48 hours in advance at (510) 841-7000, ext. 202.

Service dogs and ESA (Emotional Support Animals) are welcome depending on the class. There may be certain classes that require materials or processes that are hazardous for animals, particularly in the Printmaking Studio.  Please email classes@kala.org prior to enrolling so we can assess and accomodate you and your service animal safely and efficiently.

For more information about accessibility or to request an accommodation, please contact Erina Davidson (Education Program Coordinator, Adult Classes) by email classes@kala.org or by calling (510) 841-7000, ext. 202.
