Art Cart

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.

Workman Arts Scaling Project

(2015 – 2021)

In early 2015, as part of Workman Arts first Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) grant, Workman Arts implemented a two-year project (Phase 1) to consolidate its body of knowledge and develop a scaling framework that allowed the organization to evolve from a practice-based service provider to an evidence-based leader and change agent.
