About Artability

Artability in 2024

The Artability program provides free workshops in Minneapolis and St. Paul and hosts an annual art show and sale for the general public to promote mental health in our community. Artability provides a space for people to tap into their creativity, free of expectations or judgments. The arts can be a powerful tool for self-expression, healing, personal growth, and a bit of fun. Our workshops are designed to be accessible to all, regardless of previous experience or ability.

Each workshop includes art materials to share and the opportunity to paint, play, and learn together with other artists. A teaching artist is available to help answer questions, offer guidance, and provide feedback on the participants’ work.

“My life is so rich, and it is because of People Incorporated. They’ve given me a way to express my gifts and a way to recognize that I do have gifts.”

How Artability Changes Lives

We are grateful to Susan for sharing her story of recovery with us, revealing how the Artability program helped save her life. This program exists because people like you give to People Incorporated. You can help people like Susan by giving a gift of only $50 to purchase supplies for an Artability class.

Thank you to the supporters of our 2023 Artability Workshop programming
