Client Testimonial

People Incorporated helped me to process my depression – to get out of my head and talk about it. That was so empowering.

Artability Workshop Schedule

ABOUT
The Artability program provides free art workshops to the general public to promote mental health in the community. Managing mental health can be difficult, especially when faced with the challenges of everyday life. Artability workshops provide a safe and supportive space for people to explore their creativity, try something new, and play with a variety of art materials. 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. Art can be a powerful tool for self-expression, healing, personal growth, and a bit of fun.

We offer nearly one hundred public Artability workshops each year to promote mental health in the community. In addition, we offer nearly five hundred internal workshops a year for our clients inside of People Incorporated programs.

ELIGIBILITY
Because mental health is community health, our public workshops are open to any adult 18 years of age or older experiencing barriers to mental wellness. Proof of a mental health diagnosis, documentation, or intake is not required to attend Artability workshops.

ACCESSIBILITY
All workshops are designed to be suitable for beginner and advanced artists. All workshop art materials are included in the class free of charge. ASL interpreters are available upon request.

LOCATION
All workshops are held at People Incorporated’s Huss Minneapolis location: 2120 Park Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55404 unless specified otherwise in the individual description of the workshop.

REGISTRATION POLICY
Registration is required to attend all workshops. Registration can be accomplished two ways:

  1. Online registration is preferred.
  2.  If unable to register online, call the Artability Voicemail at 651-228-3950 and leave your name, phone number and list the workshops you wish to attend. You will receive a call back telling you which workshops we were able to register you for and which were already full. The Artability voicemail is only monitored during weekday business hours, so please plan ahead accordingly when registering for weekend workshops.

LATE POLICY / ATTENDANCE POLICY

Please plan ahead to arrive early or on time for class. Similarly, please plan to stay for the entire class. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we want to ensure a positive experience for those who are participating in the class.

Cancellations are also accepted by leaving a message on our Artability voicemail line at 651.228.3950. The voicemail line is only monitored during weekday business hours, so please plan ahead accordingly when cancelling for weekend workshops.
