Become an Artist
BEING is a welcoming community of artists, embodying a collaborative spirit that extends beyond the studio’s walls, honouring the beauty of unfiltered creativity.
If you have a passion for creative expression in the visual arts and creative writing, the BEING studio can nurture and support you in achieving your unique creative and professional goals, whether it’s to become more prolific, profitable, or simply to find focus for your creative practice.
BEING studio is open to adults with developmental disabilities who are interested in exploring their creativity. No previous art experience is required, only a desire to create and engage in the artmaking process. In the studio, artists are supported by our staff, who provide one-on-one mentorship and facilitate workshops with guest artists.
The studio offers creative support and guidance in media such as drawing, painting, sculpture, fibre art, printmaking and creative writing. Along with our core Monday- Friday daytime programming (10:00am-2:30pm) BEING offers online, evening and weekend participation options.
BEING also provides opportunities for artists to exhibit and sell their work.
The Bronson Centre is an accessible venue. The studio is located on the third floor and can be accessed by elevator. Attendant care workers are always welcome. We also offer online programming for those who want to get creative in comfort of their own home.
