Recovery Through Art Society is working to support The Art Studios program and secure the future of this great occupational therapy program because it is the best in recovery through art. We are passionate in our belief in the power of art to heal, inspire, and give joy. The Art Studios program must survive for clients both now and in the future to experience the transformative power of art.
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.”
