The healing power of art

Through art and design, our members discover their creative potential and develop new ways of expressing emotions to support their healing and recovery.  The program provides opportunities for members to learn new skills, such as producing a professional artist’s portfolio, or learning how to complete an online application form required for many art exhibitions. These are skills that someone with a mental health challenge  might find overwhelming, resulting in an invisible barrier of entry to accessing the arts community. The Art Project Roadshow walks our members through the art exhibit process and celebrates their artistic contributions and passion for the arts.

We thank all our member artists, volunteers and employees who have made the Art Project Roadshow possible.

Join our Art Room

All our artists are part of Coast Mental Health’s art program that run at a number of our facilities. The largest program is located at the Resource Centre Art Room on Seymour Street, Vancouver.  The Art Room is supported by volunteers – including professional artists and art instructors – who give their time, feedback and encouragement to clients with expertise in a number of crafts such as painting and sculpture.  Contact the Resource Centre to become a member.
