Artability in 2020-21

Due to COVID-19, we suspended all Artability in-person workshops and made the decision to cancel the Artability Art Show in 2020. This decision was made to maintain the health and safety of our community, teaching artists, and staff.  

We know that creativity can be a powerful way to cope and find strength in the face of challenges and this is why Artability On-Demand programming was created.

We are now able to offer free public Artability Workshops in 2022 and encourage you to register today!

Sincerely,
The Artability Team

About Artability

The Artability program provides free expressive arts workshops to the general public to promote mental health in our community. Artability workshops provide a safe and supportive space for people to explore their creativity, try something new, and explore a variety of materials and modalities. The workshops are also a great way to connect with others, socialize, and build 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. All workshops are designed to be accessible to all, regardless of previous experience or ability.
