Art Cart is a partnership between Workman Arts and Gifts of Light, which pairs established Workman Arts member artists with CAMH client services to provide peer-to-peer arts instruction with an emphasis on skill development and creative exploration. These art workshops connect artists with lived experience of mental health and addictions issues with those currently in recovery through structured 10-week workshop series exploring a specific art medium in depth and building a body of work. Recent classes include improv, photography, screenprinting, sculpture, textile art and poetry. Each season of workshops concludes with an exhibit of work produced across all of the classes, and participating artists are given the option to select works to exhibit and sell. Art Cart engages clients in a process of creation that not only provides recreational richness, expressive agency and quality of life, but allows clients to create pieces that are theirs to showcase and keep.
