Aurora Studio & Gallery ~ A Studio Where Artists Heal, Grow & Thrive!
Aurora Studio & Gallery has the unique mission of providing a supportive art studio for artists affected by mental health needs, addiction and/or homelessness; where artists may gather and express themselves through the visual arts; enabling them to heal, grow and thrive. We are currently raising funds to open a studio of our own, in the meantime, we have been hosting weekly workshops to work on our mission.
We are eager to hear from artists, yoga teachers, counselors & community members interested in supporting our vision.
Aurora Studio & Gallery is one of the proud recipients of the following grants:
