At Sunapple Studios, we foster creativity, connect the community, and contribute to the economy through the arts.
The Sunapple program helps to change assumptions about the abilities of people with disabilities. A true community is one that values diversity, that all people deserve a living wage, and that everyone has something important to contribute. Sunapple Studio artists participate in gallery exhibits, community art events, and all aspects of art design, production and sales. Teach-Reach workshops are the vehicle by which Sunapple artists share the skills they have learned, by leading classes for members of the community. Sunapple is a division of ARC Industries, Inc. that provides unique employment and job training opportunities to Franklin County adults with disabilities.
Sunapple's mission is to connect people with sustainable skills and marketable talents (who just happen to have disabilities) with the greater community, enabling both to flourish and grow.
Magic happens every single day in the Sunapple studio! The artist's work in a number of media and are supported in the exploration of their talents by staff and teaching consultants. The Sunapple product line includes a diversity of art products, from unique garden ornaments and herb markers to fine art paintings and prints. Sunapple artists have also created custom-designed commissioned pieces for companies and retail spaces.
