Welcome to the LivingRoom Community Art Studio's Patreon Page where we're building creative community! The LivingRoom is a registered not-for-profit  that provides a safe place where people of all ages and abilities can make and share art for free in the service of community development and individual well being. We were founded by actor and artist Mary Krohnert, and are a part of something called the Art Hive movement, which believes that everyone is an artist, and that everyone - including those most marginalized - should have access to the materials, space and support to express themselves without fear of judgment, and connect with others who can help move them forward in their creative journey. With Patreon, you can help us do that!



At the LivingRoom, we talk back to that inner critic who says "you can't" or "you shouldn't" or "you're not allowed" when it comes to expressing yourself and taking creative risks.  We support folks as they learn how to reconnect with their most authentic creative voice so that they can speak their truth using whatever medium they feel is best, in whatever way they want.  You know that voice.  It might be quiet, but it's always there.  It's the voice that knows your thoughts and feelings matter.  It's the unique and resilient voice that knows it can make a difference in the world.  You can help that voice be heard by subscribing to the LivingRoom project on Patreon.

Check out this video to hear the voices of some of our community members, and learn more about how the LivingRoom has made a difference in their lives...



Believe it or not, one or two dollars a month can help us pay our rent, and keep the studio doors open for our community.  For every month our rent is covered, we can focus on supporting the folks who need it most - in the studio and online.
Oh yeah - did we mention that we want to create online content for all those folks who love what we do but can't make it in to the studio in person? Yup. We want to do that too, along with celebrating all the amazing artists and makers we know!



Wonderful things happen when people come together at the LivingRoom - not just great works of art, but wonderful moments between individuals.  It's a space where people can practice being human - which is an art form all in itself.  When folks are at the studio we understand that - in spite of our differences - we are ALL artists capable of transforming ideas into action, and thoughts into things that create meaningful change for ourselves and others.  Creativity becomes the common ground that brings folks together to share their experiences of what it's like to be them.  Making and sharing art softens the heart and makes it possible to take in someone's story, identify the places where you can relate, ask for what you need, and offer others support.



As we grow forward, that support isn't just for and from the people we connect with in person.  Our online community is super important to us as well.  As we meet our goals we will expand to provide more services for folks who can't make it into the studio, or who live far away.  This means creating more online workshops and demos, artist support, live streaming artist chats, art jams and performances.  It means more opportunities to connect with makers and creators from our community and around the world so that we can share and celebrate our creativity, and learn more about the world in which we live. 

We would be honoured if you joined us on this journey and became a part of our creative community through Patreon.  Every dollar counts, and every voice matters.  Making Art Matters.  Thank you so much for your support!
