In September, the ArtWorks Gallery & Studio moved into a larger downtown Scranton location. The new building, located at 236 Penn Avenue, has three times the gallery space and features multiple studios for room to grow. The ArtWorks team is planning a new exclusive pottery studio that boasts a kiln for firing clay works to create one-of-a-kind pottery items. Planned new programs also include print making, silk screening, lynol cuts, digital studio, drawing, and painting.

A program of Keystone Community Resources, ArtWorks is an alternative to traditional day service for individuals with Autism and Intellectual Disabilities. It is a creative environment with an individual based schedule suited to a person’s needs or skill level. We are looking to integrate community classes and eventually extend the hours of operation.

The ArtWorks Gallery & Studio also has new art classes at night for adults, teens and children. Call 570-207-1815 today about fees and registration.
