ArtWorks Studios relocate to the West End
Throughout this winter, the ArtWorks team has been busy Marie Kondo-ing our facilities!

Our headquarters remain at 20 E. Central Parkway  on the first floor of the Hale-Justis building, and  we invite you to our ArtWorks Yard Sale this Saturday.

And we're proud to announce  we have moved our award-winning Hero Design Company to the ArtWorks Studios in the Carl Solway Gallery in the West End , increasing our presence in the neighborhood.

Hero Design Company is a program that shows the world that regardless of limitation or circumstance, every child possesses an amazing and unique array of strengths and real world superpowers. Our Youth Apprentices engage, encourage and empower children through the creation of custom superhero capes. Together, we seek to unite our community and prove that within every child lives a true hero.   Meet one of the little heroes, Ahna (video) .

Thank you for all your support of ArtWorks during these changes, and we'll keep you informed as we build the ArtWorks Studios. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at   or 513.333.0388.
