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.
Join us on the last Sunday of each month from 1-4 PM at Art Spark Texas for a monthly Makers Meet-Up. All ages and types of makers are welcome! We will work on a different arts and crafts project each month with supplies provided. Or, bring your own project to work on as you hang out with other creative people.
Art Spark Texas is excited to be a part of the East Austin Arts District’s Third Thursday self-guided gallery tour. Join us every third Thursday of the month from 6-9 PM. We feature two different artists in our space each month. If you are an artist interested in showing your work, please reach out to us.
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. 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.
