About

The Claraty Arts Project is an arts program, studio and gallery in Santa Cruz. It is one of three services operated by Mainstream, Inc., a Santa Cruz based organization committed to the equality and empowerment of people with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Its purpose is to support and advance the development of a new, positive, collective identity for developmentally disabled adults via arts education, training, expression and production.

Artists

The Claraty Arts Project currently supports 20 studio artists working in an array of mediums in our Santa Cruz program.  Studio artists can participate in one on one instruction, art history and art theory lectures, exhibit works in our in-house gallery, and visit local museums and other community spaces for inspiration.

Upcoming Shows

On September 6th from 5 to 9 PM, the Claraty Arts Project presents SPECTRUM, an abstract show featuring all new works by the Claraty Arts artists. Come by the gallery to see what the studio has been up to for the past two months. All new prints, t-shirts, and other items will be for sale. Complimentary food and drinks will be served. Contact the studio at 831 - 427 - 1878 for more details. We’ll see you there!


We pledge to:

Defy any past that imprisons

Embrace the unknown for the hopes and possibilities it offers to transform our realities, and

Accept our responsibility to reject and reconstruct the old imposed identities that defines any human being as unwanted, unneeded, or unknown.

‘‘We have this studio to show that we are no more unique and no more ordinary than anyone else.’’ -Marshall Woodall
