Aurora Studio & Gallery ~ A Studio Where Artists Heal, Grow & Thrive!
Aurora Studio & Gallery is a program in Asheville, North Carolina that has been offering classes to artists in recovery since the summer of 2013. The studio collaborates with local artists and healing arts instructors in our community in order to offer a collective art space for artists affected by mental health needs, homelessness and/or addiction (who are in early stages of their recovery). The studio provides artists with the space and art supplies to explore their personal creativity, which they could not otherwise obtain or afford. The integrative structure and community support provided by Aurora Studio & Gallery enables artists to heal, grow and thrive.
