Create. Connect. Change Lives.
"Great things happen when you give a person freedom of expression."
Every day we see an explosion of creativity and discovery in the studios. Something very profound happens when genuine voices find expression through art. Both artist and audience are forever changed.
When you walk into our studios for the first time, you see people with developmental disabilities. Take time to meet them and look at the art they are creating. Pretty soon, you'll just see amazing artists creating work that is as original and interesting as you will find anywhere.Book a Tour Donate Now
Meet An Artist
Kwabena is a young artist who participates in a variety of artistic endeavors at the Nina Haggerty Centre. He enjoys abstract art, but continues to develop his skills in other respects. He has most recently been developing his observational skills by the help of a visiting model that poses for the artists every Thursday at the Nina Haggerty Centre. His favourite medium is acrylic paint, “It’s good to paint!”

How to Get Started
Adults with developmental disabilities pay a low annual membership fee, based on the number of days they commit to the studio. In exchange, they receive art materials and equipment, a space to create their works of art, and the opportunity to exhibit and sell their original works of art.
In the studio, the artists are supported by a rotating team of professional, art-educated practicing artists who facilitate the art making experience through one-to-one mentorship, small group sessions and workshops.
Artists work at their own pace and are encouraged to find their own unique artistic voice. Visit the studio today!
