Support Unruly Arts


1. freedom from restrictions that tamper the human spirit
2. original (before the rules); unconditioned; unfettered; undeterred; unencumbered
Free from the indignities of their labels and the rules that restricted their vision, they unleashed their creativity and became known as unruly artists.

Unruly Arts is a 501(c)(3) professional studio that provides art instruction, materials, and skill-building to artists with disabilities. Fueled by the support, passion, and dedication of a small but powerful community, Unruly Arts moved from art-making in a garage, to a leased and renovated studio in January, 2017. We are now providing art instruction three days per week and the number of artists we serve is growing. It’s time to build on that momentum!

While Unruly Arts has an abundance of people resources, we have a great need for art-making supplies, materials, and equipment. In addition to canvas, brushes, and paints, your donation will help us purchase a kiln and glass-making supplies, an i-pad, and office equipment for our start-up.

Please consider joining the Unruly movement, and supporting this campaign. We look forward to updating you on our progress, and sharing more of our story on our soon-to-be-published website!
