Our mission at Elmhurst, Inc. is to encourage independence and to support responsible decision making by people with developmental disabilities and/or mental illness in the mid coast area. As part of our efforts to reach these goals, we have established an art program for our consumers. It’s purpose is to provide opportunities for individuals who choose to explore and express their creativity through artistic means.

Artists are exposed to a variety of media. Painting, sculpture, jewelry making, quilting, photography, basket weaving and pottery are among the available options open to the consumers. Works are displayed at the studio and various locations in the community. Additionally, we hope to find art galleries willing to showcase these pieces. In order to help facilitate the creative process, we utilize a number of volunteers and paid staff to work with consumers on an individual basis when needed. Featured artists are also invited as guests to the studio. Artists will be able to showcase and sell their art several times a year.
