Since 2004, Artists’ Open Studio has provided casual, uninstructed art studio opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities to practice fine art skills along-side artists from the Huron County, Ohio area. Uniquely expressive art results when these artists work independently with the media of their choice, and are encouraged by fellow artists and facilitators.
Artists’ Open Studio provides art materials, prepares works for exhibit in local and state-wide venues and manufactures art related products to sell. These endeavors are supported by customers, contributors, and by the Huron County Board of DD.
“Visions Revealed” is an annual exhibit sponsored by AOS at the Ernsthausen Performing Arts Center in Norwalk, Ohio. This collaborative show features art from our studios along with works created in the studios at the Cleveland Clinic Cancer Centers and the Autism Spectrum Kids summer programs at Fisher-Titus Medical Center. Visit our Blog to view postings of our AOS Artist of the Month and current activities.
AOS designs, creates tools for, and over-sees the manufacture of several exceptional products in cooperation with Christie Lane Industries. A signature element in many of our products is recycled glass. Visit our online shop to purchase stoneware with glass coasters, wine bottleneck jewelry or “fan dangles”, and other one-of-a-kind gifts.
To promote our individual artists, AOS designs and prints note cards and other stationery items featuring their work. See these displayed in our online shop. Contact us for a quote to customize a printing order of our products for you.
