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.

Meet An Artist

Ernest’s art is a nice mix of abstraction and landscape painting.  He prefers to work with tempera paints but also enjoys acrylics and canvas.  Since Ernest enjoys working with his hands, he has recently begun experimenting with making pottery.

How to Get Started

img.nhca-art-director-paul-freeman-happy-artistAdults 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!
