Become a Member
If you are an artist who has received services for mental health issues and you’re interested in our programs, consider applying for membership. We are always interested in hearing from artists and adding new perspectives and talents to the Workman Arts community. We do not require formal referrals. Artists are encouraged to contact us directly.
Intake processes are ongoing, and involve an initial review of an artist’s current work and goals, followed by an intake interview. Intake interviews are typically conducted three times a year, in the period leading up to the start of our training seasons in Fall, Winter and Spring. For further information about membership please contact our Membership Manager: Justina Zatzman at 416-583-4339 ex 9.
Please be advised that there is a high demand for our programs, and there may be a wait list at the time you apply. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated, and we will work diligently to create space for new artists and reduce wait times.
What is the cost of membership?
Membership is free to all eligible artists.
Do I have to have received services from CAMH to be eligible?
No. You are eligible for membership if you have received services from ANY mental health or addictions program.
How much do courses cost?
Courses are free to all member artists. Artists are expected to supply materials unless otherwise specified.
Do I need a referral from a Doctor to prove my eligibility?
Is there a waiting list?
We have recently reviewed and expedited our intake process. However, due to a high demand for our programs, there may at times be a wait list, and artists could wait 2-4 months before having an intake interview scheduled. Feel free to contact us for information on the current availability of membership.
Can Workman Arts give me a solo exhibition?
Workman Arts sends out calls for submissions throughout the year to its membership for group and solo exhibition opportunities. Participants are selected through a formal jury process.
