About ArtMIX

People with disabilities face barriers on a daily basis – steps, curbs, and narrow doorways, for example. The primary barrier, however, is the label of “disability.” As a result, people with disabilities are excluded and devalued. The exclusion and isolation that are a regular experience among people with disabilities unnaturally magnifies the effects of disability and discounts the skills, expertise, and abilities they can offer their communities.

ArtMix programs reduce and eliminate these actual and attitudinal barriers.

Art is Not the Thing, it is the Way

ArtMix addresses barriers by creating opportunities for self-expression and socialization. As studies show, we use art to:

Enhance education
Communicate experiences
Unite diverse cultures

People with disabilities who practice visual, literary, and performing arts contribute more to the social, cultural, and economic life of their communities. And, inclusive arts programming promotes disability awareness and inclusion worldwide.

So, it’s not just an art class at ArtMix, it’s an art community!

“I enjoyed the community. ArtMix is like a family and really emphasizes the community aspect of art. The internship showed me how to grow in event management and personal relations. Working in the building and seeing the students would brighten my day. They're also flexbile and the staff is really great.”
