Welcome to A.R.T.S
Artists Recovering Through the Twelve Steps (A.R.T.S.) helps break your creative block so you can follow your inspiration and your passions. We want you to reach your full potential as a creative person. For the professional artist the A.R.T.S. program will keep you on track toward an ever higher level of achievement. As a fellowship of artists we believe in your gifts and dreams and we will help you believe in them too. That's a promise.

In A.R.T.S., bottom line sobriety begins with a humble daily action to pick up one’s creativity, “one day at a time.” Members are asked to do no less than five minutes of art every day. If one picks up even for five minutes there will be days when 5 minutes turns into hours.
