A Community Supporting Recovery Through Art
Studio A provides Ongoing professional support for artistically talented adults with psychiatric disabilities, Autism spectrum disorders, and head injurIes.
Studio A offers opportunities to pursue professional art careers within a small, supportive community of dedicated artists with similar experiences. Artists in Studio A work independently in a less structured, yet equally supportive environment, to focus their time on the creation of artwork to be exhibited and sold. Each artist comes to the studio on scheduled basis.
Studio A was established as a studio within Gateway in 1997.
In response to a growing need for alternative arts-based services for individuals with psychiatric disabilities in the late 90’s, Gateway acquired additional studio space and developed programming to serve and support a new group of artists. This program, Studio A, provides access to high quality art materials and representation in our gallery, store, and online.
Studio A is not just a work space, but a community of artists, mentors, and friends.
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 counselors, therapists, and support teams to provide coordination and mentorship, and assist artists with their challenges.
