At OSP, our mission is to provide a welcoming environment to create art for personal growth, social-emotional intelligence, and community well-being.
Art for Personal Growth and Community Well-Being
In all that Open Studio Project does, we strive to promote positive social and emotional change. At our core, Open Studio Project is about making art and being of service. We are proud of the impact we make in our community, and are constantly working to find areas of need both in our community and beyond. As we believe that art can change everything, we look to bring our healing OSP Process to as many people as we can in as many ways as we can.
Some of the issues we tackle in our classes and programs include, but are not limited to:
- Stress Management
- Increase of Bullying
- Technology Addiction
- Rapid Culture Development
- Political Climate
- Substance Abuse
- Sensory Challenges/Autism
- Anger Management
- Grief Management
- Self/Body Image
- Peer Pressure
- Life Changes
The values of Open Studio Project are what guides us to make the creative impact decisions that we make every day. Internally, OSP uses these values every day to create goals and find areas of improvement. We also make these values public so that you may see where your personal values, goals, and asperations may line up with ours.
