About Open Studio
Open Studio for All welcomes ALL people, with all abilities, from all cultures and backgrounds, of every color, all economic statuses, and all members of the LGBTQ community. The goal of Open Studio is to create a more inclusive art community by shifting people’s perceptions about individuals with disabilities through gatherings to create artwork, share experiences and talents, and share stories as the community members get to know one another. Allowing more people access to art gatherings in our community will change people’s perceptions about individuals with disabilities and will impact that population through the opportunities to create art, through sharing artist abilities and talents, and through the conversations that will take place at the gatherings. Developing and nurturing social relationships is key to mental and physical health. Through Open Studio for All, people with disabilities will have opportunities to be the leaders and instructors of art as well as the students and will play an active role in changing perceptions in our community.
