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.

5 Alive

5 minutes every day
keeps my art alive.

5 minutes every day
keeps my block away.

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.

“There is nothing to prove. No forms to fill out. No dues or fees. You’re an artist if you say you are. There’s no big message, no drum to beat, no enemy to fight, no cause to die for, and no big shots. No one person runs the show. No one is turned away. Nobody can kick you out. Everybody is creative. Everyone is an artist.”
