NIAD Art Center is a nonprofit arts organization, based in Richmond, CA, that provides studios, supplies, and gallery space to artists with developmental, mental, and physical disabilities.[1][2][3][4]

Organization[edit]

NIAD, which stands for the National Institute of Art & Disabilities, is a 4,000 sq. ft. art studio in Richmond, California.[5] NIAD works with 60 artists every week, up to 35 daily.[6] Some of the artists have physical disabilities; while others have developmental disabilities, and others have both.[6] The artists enrolled at NIAD work with teachers, who instruct them in 5 different mediums: painting, fiber, ceramics, making art from paper, and printmaking.[6]

In addition to the studio space for artists, NIAD Art Center has an exhibition space where they present programming featuring the artists attending the center.[3]

NIAD Art Center has a budget of around $600,000, as of 2012, a third of which is raised through donations and sales.[7]
