Robertson Park Artists Studio is a light filled space that occupies the whole of Halvorsen Hall (B:1970). The building is located in the middle of the southern (city side) half of Robertson Park, which until 1999 housed the Perth City Band.  
 
In 2000, the Hyde Park Precinct Group and the Mayor of Vincent helped five artists find the new studio space, after the Wellman Street Artists Studio closed. Today the studio is one of the longest running artist run initiatives in Perth. 
 
The studio is open plan, with the current six artists (Graham Hay, Carol Rowling, Fran Dennis, Sarah Jane Marchant, Chris McClelland and Bethamy Linton), sharing the space to suit their individual creative projects scale and time frame.  The space is also shared with approximately 90 recreational and professional art students with pottery, sculpture, painting and jewelry classes all run form the space.
