H’art Studio

We deliver a high-quality arts program for adults with developmental disabilities.

Since 1998, our H’art Studio program has offered adults with developmental disabilities the opportunity to reach their highest potential through the arts and indirect learning.

The H’art Studio program offers artists a chance to build important skills while engaged in the practice and enjoyment of visual arts, music, theatre, dance, media arts, and literary arts.

Here are just a few of the artistic disciplines you will experience at H’art!

Program Details

H’art Studio is offered Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. year-round.

From September to December, H’artists learn art fundamentals and apply them to artistic projects.

From January to March, the artistic streams collaborate and work towards a public performance in the spring.

The summer is a time to experiment artistically, take field trips, and collaborate with visiting artists. Workshops are offered in two art studios, an inclusive performing arts space (THE BOX), and a collaborative workshop space (THE MIX).

Artistic Output
Over the years, H’art Studio artists have created thousands of works of art, performed on stages in original musicals for tens of thousands of audience members, written plays, expressed themselves through dance, collaborated on original music for musical theatre, experimented with digital art, and produced an illustrated children’s book series. We believe anything is possible through the arts!

Fee and Financial Assistance
The daily fee to attend H’art Studio is $62 for a full day and $42 for a half-day (as of January 2023). The program is eligible for Passport funding. 

Bursary Fund
Our donors and community partners work to remove financial barriers for adults with developmental disabilities. If you have a financial need, you may be able to access support through our limited Bursary Fund.
