The Art Department and Publication Studio are non-profit leadership programs of Creative Trails that advocate for career exploration for Maine artists with developmental and intellectual disabilities. They have been providing professional support since 2011 for artists striving to reach their creative potential. They provide an environment that encourages each individual to develop technical skills to collaborate with local artists and pursue strategies for self-promotion and connections through community events. Through public access to their studio space and art exhibitions, they strengthen community contacts and spark conversations that add to the vibrancy of the Portland art scene. The Art Department and Publication Studio are located at 611 and 613 Congress St. in Portland, Maine, where you can shop at the gallery and gift store.
