An artist studio-gallery for people of all abilities to express themselves, collaborate as a community, and create innovative and diverse works of art.
At Santa Barbara Art Works we encourage artists of all skill-levels and abilities to create, show, and sell their work. So often artists must fight through years of discouragement to get to a place where people will display their work. At Santa Barbara Art Works we make art work for all artists who desire to create.
Making Art Work
for Artists with Disabilities
We specialize in helping artists through the process of learning. We partner with UCP WORK, Inc., a service provider for adults and children with developmental and intellectual disabilities, and we provide art instruction and adaptable art techniques for 15 resident artists with disabilities. Classes and workshops are taught to our resident artists five days a week in painting, ceramics, mixed media, watercolor. We're hoping to include photography in the near future.
Santa Barbara Art Works is open to the public and welcomes people of all abilities to come and collaborate with our 15 resident artists. In addition, we provide art studio space on a membership plan for local artists from the Santa Barbara area.
Public Art Shows
The Santa Barbara Art Works art shows are an opportunity for the public to see art from artists in the process of finding their voice in the art world. We will be participating monthly in Downtown Santa Barbara's 1st Thursday events throughout the year. Check the Special Events Calendar for upcoming art shows!
