Studio A provides long term professional support for artistically talented adults with psychiatric and other disabilities, such as spectrum disorders and head injury.

Studio A offers opportunities to pursue professional art careers within a small, supportive community of dedicated artists with similar experiences.  Artists in Studio A focus their time on the creation of artwork that can be exhibited and sold. Each artist comes to the studio on a preset schedule and works independently on his or her projects.

Studio A was established as a studio within Gateway in 1997. Due to its relatively small size, this program has been described by many as a community of artists and friends. Studio A provides access to high quality art materials for 2-Dimensional and small scale 3-Dimensional work, jewelry and other crafts.

The professionally trained Studio A staff are artists themselves, and are available for facilitation, suggestions, and sensitive critique. Studio A staff work side by side with artists, counselors, therapists and support teams and provide case coordination and mentorship to artists to assist them with any challenging vocational and emotional issues.
