About Artworks

The Artworks program provides opportunities for artists with disabilities to join an inclusive community. We offer programs in all artistic disciplines – music, visual art, performance, dance, and writing. We support artists at any stage of development: beginners and amateurs using art as a hobby, emerging artists, and accomplished artists preparing to start their own businesses.

Through informal gatherings of artists, community conversations, exhibitions, performance opportunities, classes, and skill-building workshops, there is something for everyone. Sign up for our Artist email list to stay informed about upcoming events. Email our Artworks Director, April Sullivan or call 512-454-9912 ext 103 to tell us more about yourself and your creative endeavors. Our staff is a great resource to the larger Texas artist community.

MAKERS HAPPY HOUR

A virtual artist hangout on the last Thursday of each month. All types of makers are welcome! Bring your choice of media, or your latest creative project to share. We’ll do a creative prompt or two, or try a new art method, and share our work.

COMMUNITY CONVERSATIONS

Once a month virtual artist talks by our Artist of the Month and other creative types sharing about their life, art, and inspirations.

THE LION AND THE PIRATE OPEN MIC

Join us at our free and inclusive monthly Open Mic in partnership with the Coalition of Texans with Disabilities and Malvern Books. Seasoned and aspiring performers can share a story, poem, song, or other talent in a fun and supportive space. Audience only attendees are encouraged! You’re sure to have a blast enjoying the entertainment and mingling with other creative folks.

HAVEN ALLEN ARTIST OF THE YEAR AWARDS

Each year, awards are given to Texas artists who embody the spirit and vision of Art Spark Texas, and who challenge the perceptions of how people contribute by demonstrating artistic excellence or demonstrating a substantial body of work, or by leading the way as a community catalyst for change through their artistry. Learn more about the Haven Allen Artist of the Year Awards.

THANK YOU TO OUR FUNDERS!
