ABOUT ART GEMS
Art Gems is an annual fundraising art auction in support of Creative Works Studio in Toronto, a community based rehabilitative therapeutic program offering healing and recovery through the creative arts for people living with severe and persistent mental illness. As a result of participating in the studio, members gain confidence and increase their sense of well-being. The goal for everyone is to return to a meaningful and active life.

Since 2007, your generosity and support has enabled Art Gems to raise over $1,500,000 for this life-changing mental health outreach program in downtown Toronto. Together we are making positive change in the lives of the many studio members, who, through this rehabilitative therapeutic program, experience healing, increased self-esteem and the return of important life skills through their participation in the arts.
