Black Canvas Studios
Blank Canvas Studios opened its doors in February of 2009 in Saint Charles, Missouri. As a division of the national non-profit organization Resources for Human Development, BCS operates as an art-based day program, providing services to adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Outsider Art encompasses work produced by people with a different perspective on life and approach to the arts. BCS offers the opportunity to showcase and sell their artwork in the BCS gallery and in the local community. A team of local Artists work as Direct Support in the studio and strive to integrate the BCS studio into the local art community. Artists that attend Blank Canvas Studios have opportunities to explore a variety of art mediums, including painting, sculpting, graphic design, illustration, printmaking, drawing, dance, theater, film, photography, video and music, jewelry, and fiber arts.
