Hands On Studio is a creative and inclusive art space that provides people with disabilities access to art education and facilities. The Studio’s staff takes into consideration the varying abilities and needs of their students and design a personalised art education program with them.
Housed within the M16 studio and gallery complex in Griffith, the Studio offers seven classes a week, which include painting, drawing, printmaking, mixed media and clay. The students work in collaboration with art tutors from various disciplines to make art works across a number of mediums. Students are encouraged to view their art practice in a professional manner and regularly contribute art work to high quality exhibitions and displays in various venues around Canberra.
One of the key objectives of Hands On Studio is to provide an opportunity for students to become professional practicing artists in their own right. The Studio assists students to achieve their artistic potential in the wider art community by seeking recognition for their art work and their practice as artists.
