Opportunities for people with a disability through art

QArt Studio and Gallery is a professionally operated studio committed to providing employment, mentoring and training to a brilliant group of professional artists with a disability. These artists receive support and artistic direction from qualified managers, mentoring each person to further develop their skills. Positive reaction to the work produced by these capable artists have led them to be recognised by well-established and respectable organisations such as The Royal Melbourne Hospital and the Kew Local Council. They are proud to use these artists’ artwork in creative ways and keep promoting their voices and stories.

QArt is seeking sponsorship from businesses of all sizes through its ‘Sponsor an Artist’ program. Through this program, QArt will be able to continue its commitment to providing opportunities to artists with a disability so they can have a well-deserved place in the Arts Community. Funds will go towards buying paints, canvas and supplies.
