ArtReach Studios provides a unique arts academy environment where adults with developmental disabilities can pursue art as a means of personal expression and to develop new skills, connect to a larger art community and realize financial gains through sales of their work. Students in this innovative program get support in pursuing a major course of study, as well as encouragement to try different art forms in expressive, visual and media arts. All classes are taught in our studio by instructors from The Arc, with guest lecturers and community artists augmenting the curricula.
Our art program promotes the advancement of visual artists from The Arc SF through exploration, education, exhibitions and entrepreneurship. Our artists create fresh, powerful artwork that reveals an innate ability, and a point of view that’s important and unique to the community. Our studio and classes are a primary educational and creative outlet for many participants. Their work is an important means of self-expression and a vital link to sharing who they are.
