The Artability program provides free art workshops to the general public to promote mental health in the community. 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. Artability creates a space for people to tap into their creativity free of expectations or judgments. The workshops are also a great way to connect with others, socialize, and build community. Art can be a powerful tool for self-expression, healing, personal growth, and a bit of fun.
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.
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.
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.

Cancellations are required at least 48 hours in advance. If you registered online through your Eventbrite account, please log in to your Eventbrite account via a browser (not the app) to cancel online.

Artability reserves the right to limit future registration for participants who repeatedly no-show for workshops.
