Using art to make a difference.


Studio B uses art and story to create spaces where everyone is seen, heard, and valued, cultivating individual self-esteem and building stronger communities. We seek to empower marginalized and isolated populations through art experiences, exhibitions, and community programs that address pressing social issues, while also highlighting our shared humanity.
