Thanks to all who attended and supported our 50th Anniversary Gala on September 9th! It was an evening of celebration, reflection, and looking to the future. Because of the support of our community we were able to raise over $38,000 in support of the studio.

In case you missed it, view our commemorative 50th anniversary video on our website. The video features footage from our founders, community partners, and current staff and clients.

At the start of this year we launched a new partnership with SPACES, offering Art Therapy Thursdays at the gallery's Detroit Avenue location. For the low cost of $5, participants have experienced a wide variety of art therapy projects focusing on different media and techniques.

Art Therapy Thursdays have been successful in bringing the benefits of art therapy to new audiences. This unique program will continue through the rest of 2017 on the first Thursday of every month. Call us at 216-791-9303 to join us for one or more of our upcoming sessions.
