Creative Citizen Studios uses art to bring people of all abilities together.  We work with artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities to make, exhibit, and sell their work.  Our weekly art classes, workshops, and exhibit opportunities help promote our artists while connecting them with a larger community of artists. Through the Spring & Summer of 2022 we took part in multiple Craft-specific workshops and opportunities in community spaces.

We are proud to put on our one-day exhibition titled “Fiber Explorations” at a A Fair in the Park on September 9th, 2022. Please enjoy the exhibition created by a talented group of Neurodivergent multi-talented artists.”
