Creativity Explored advances the value and diversity of artistic expression. We provide artists with developmental disabilities the means to create, exhibit, and sell their art in our studios and gallery, and around the world.
Creativity Explored provides over 130 people with developmental disabilities opportunities to express themselves through the creation of art, earn income from the sale of their artwork, and pursue their careers as a visual artists to the fullest extent possible.
Our Studio Arts Program provides broad and diverse art education opportunities in and outside the studio. We provide studio workspace, mentorship from professional artists, and resources to explore a variety of techniques.
Through our Exhibitions Program, we professionally exhibit and market works created by artists working in our studios. We mount six exhibitions per year in our on-site gallery and have artwork frequently included in off-site exhibitions locally, nationally, and internationally.
Our Community Arts Program provides studio artists opportunities to visit Bay Area museums, galleries, and local artists’ studios. Groups of four studio artists are accompanied by an art instructor to experience and participate in the Bay Area arts community.
Through our Guest Artist Workshop Program, community artists provide workshops in our studio and provide studio artists with the opportunity to engage in collaborative art making using techniques and media not offered at Creativity Explored on an on-going basis.
