Visual Arts Studios


Tutti Visual Arts is a dynamic arts program for young adults with intellectual and learning disabilities, incorporating painting, drawing, printmaking, digital art and sculpture.

The program expanded in 2017 to provide arts programs at Port Adelaide through a new partnership with Fontanelle Gallery, and in the Barossa Valley.

2017 program days are as follows:

  • Brighton on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
  • Port Adelaide on Monday and Tuesday – places available for 2017
  • Nuriootpa in the Barossa Valley on Wednesday – places available for 2017

The program provides a studio environment where artists explore and engage in 2D, 3D and new media projects. Led by a team of passionate and dedicated creative professionals, the program supports the development of the artists’ careers and individual professional practice. Creative collaborations within the program and with other art organisations make this an exciting place where artists enjoy an energetic and stimulating sense of community and vibrancy.

Creative outcomes of our program have seen our artists exhibit their work locally, nationally, and overseas. Artworks have been projected onto iconic buildings, appeared as public installations and been awarded and recognised for their excellence.

In order to attend Tutti Arts programs participants need to have:

  • access to funding (usually via Disability SA or NDIS). A self-funding option is also available
  • an intellectual or learning disability
  • an interest and/or experience in one or more the art forms

Alice Green“My interests are the female body and fantasy. Mermaids combine these interests – they are slim, strong and beautiful. I like painting the underwater environment I can imagine they exist in.”

Grace Bell“I like to express myself in the way that the artist Jackson Pollock did. I’m also interested in incorporating natural objects and things like shells and sand into my work.”
