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.

This program is offered at three sites throughout South Australia:

  • Brighton on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
  • Port Adelaide on Monday and Tuesday
  • Tanunda in the Barossa Valley on Monday and Wednesday

Programs return for the new year during the week 18 – 22 January 2021.

Tutti 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 artists’ careers and individual professional practice. Creative collaborations within the program and with other art organisations ensure Tutti’s visual arts studio is an energetic and stimulating community of artists.

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 recognised for their excellence.

Tutti’s 2018 Fringe exhibition, Wild Things, won the BankSA Adelaide Fringe Week 4 Award for Best Visual Art & Design. Tutti visual artist Kurt Bosecke won the 2017 BankSA Adelaide Fringe Award for Best Visual Art & Design.
