ArtWorking primarily works with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities that have self-identified as artists. We support individuals with an extremely diverse array of talents, with a wide range of support needs. Some of the artists that we work with are very advanced, while others are just beginning their journey. While many of the successful artists that we support will overcome significant challenges on their paths to success, the one attribute that unites them all is a passion for making things. If you share this passion, and are excited about taking your abilities to the next level, we might be a good fit for you.
Most all of the artists that we work with fund the supports that we provide through the IRIS program or through the Family Care program. Occasionally we also have artists privately pay for our services, or access short term funding through the WI Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR).
If you think that our services might be a good fit for you, the first step is to share your interest in ArtWorking with the people around you, such as family, guardians, care managers, IRIS consultants, etc. The next step would be for you or someone on your team to email or call us, to see what we can do to help you reach your goals.
