Recovery Through Art and The Art Studios are thrilled to be endorsed by renowned Canadian artist Gathie Falk:
“The Art Studios has helped many people with mental illness and addictions to learn art skills, become more confident and develop new roles as artists, assistants, instructors, mentors etc. I am very happy to endorse VRTAS (Vancouver Recovery Through Art Society) and The Art Studios it supports”.
“Recreation’s purpose is not to kill time, but to make life, not to keep a person occupied, but to keep them refreshed; not to offer an escape from life, but to provide a discovery of life.”
