The Artability program provides free workshops and hosts an annual art show for the general public to promote mental health in our community. Artability creates a space for people to tap into the creativity within themselves 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 show are designed to be accessible to all, regardless of previous experience or ability.
Changes to Artability in 2021
We hope that you are staying safe and healthy during these uncertain and unprecedented times. Due to COVID-19, we suspended all Artability in-person workshops and made the decision to move both our workshops and 2021 Artability Show to virtual formats to protect the health and safety of our communities.
Our Artability On-Demand programming, featuring short, free art, mindfulness and music videos, can be accessed in the comfort of your home.
Our 2021 Artability Show Virtual Edition premiere took place on November 5, 2021, at 3 p.m. on our Facebook and YouTube channels and our website.
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.
