BEING Studio Information

BEING studio is a community of artists with developmental disabilities. BEING has been continually adapting to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, and recently launched an exciting virtual program called BEING Home. The virtual program offers facilitated chat sessions, home art supply deliveries and video prompts to inspire art projects from home.  What felt at first like a lifeline for our community has begun to open a world of possibility and expanded connection that we never thought possible.
