The Artability program provides free workshops and hosts an annual art show for the general public to promote mental health in our community. Artability provides a space for people to tap into their creativity, free of expectations or judgments. The arts can be a powerful tool for self-expression, healing, personal growth, and a bit of fun. Our workshops and art shows are designed to be accessible to all, regardless of previous experience or ability.
People Incorporated provides free public Artability Workshops in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Each workshop includes art materials to share and the opportunity to paint, play, and learn together with other artists. A teaching artist is available to help answer questions, offer guidance, and provide feedback on the participants’ work.

Our Artability On-Demand programming, featuring short, free art, mindfulness, and music videos, can be accessed in the comfort of your home.
How Artability Changes Lives
“My life is so rich, and it is because of People Incorporated. They’ve given me a way to express my gifts and a way to recognize that I do have gifts.” We are grateful to Susan for sharing her story of recovery with us, revealing how the Artability program helped save her life. This program exists because people like you give to People Incorporated. Art, music, movement, and other wellness programs at People Incorporated have a much higher demand than our financial resources can provide. Your support would allow us to bring Artability and our wellness services to more people in recovery from their mental illness. You can help people like Susan by giving a gift of only $50 to purchase supplies for an Artability class.
