To explore, develop, and practice creativity as a means of wellness.


The power of storytelling. The art of healing.


Well Arts partners with organizations around Portland Metro area to conduct 10 week writing and visual arts workshops. Each session is lead by a trained facilitator. At the end of the ten week period, each workshop participant receives a bound book of his/her own creations. The partner organization receives an anthology of all participant creations from that workshop. Each participant is then paired with a professional actor, who rehearses with the participant. The actors as a group perform the stories written in the workshops for the Portland community. Each partner organization receives a dvd of the performances. Well Arts is proud of its ten years bringing the art community to support people facing life altering health issues!
