Make Studio is a 501(c)3 community-based arts organization located in Baltimore, MD. Founded in 2010 with the mission of providing multi-modal arts programming to individuals with disabilities, Make Studio aims to put art and abilities to work throughout Baltimore and beyond to create more inclusive communities for all.

Make Studio is motivated by a consideration of quality of life for and a celebration of the whole person, and the understanding that art does not exist in a vacuum. We believe that providing avenues for communication, connection, & empowerment to artists with disabilities equally benefits individuals and their communities.

Via ongoing exhibitions, public programs, and studio services for visual artists with disabilities, we celebrate the aesthetics and concerns of artists commonly typed as "outsiders", making visible their observations and points-of-view to increase the vibrancy of our cultural sector.
