Kāpiti Arts Guide Listing no. 55
Art Studio, established in 2010, is a community based arts group for people who are differently abled. Workshops regularly consist of 20 students and 7 volunteers all from the greater Kāpiti area. The weekly workshop is held at the Kāpiti Community Centre. This is not only our creative space, but is a space that allows for non-judgemental self-expression. This in turn allows the participants to fully explore and develop their creative skills. Artists are encouraged to discover different ways of engaging with a variety of media through experimentation, giving a voice to each artist.
For many of the artists, Art Studio is their one weekly outing, the one thing that they look forward too. They create close-knit friendships and form a support base. It is a chance to express themselves, and to be in an environment with others who are in the same or a similar position. Lasting, supportive, friendships as well as great art are created here.
