“The Art Studios has given me motivation and inspiration to work and create independently. It has taught me skills I can transfer to other areas in my life and helped me in building relationships with others. I have the opportunity to work one-on-one with a deaf individual and use my ASL skills. It has given me a safe place to make art, express myself and use my creativity. Despite my mental illness I have been accepted for who I am. And the staff and instructors have been wonderful.
I believe that The Art Studios is a much-needed place for therapy and I hope it can continue its mission for many years to come.”
