H'Art of Ottawa’s mission is to enhance the literacy, artistic skills and life skills of older teens and adults with intellectual disabilities by providing innovative, curriculum-based, entrepreneurial opportunities using art and literacy as a tool and medium.
About Our Charity
H’Art of Ottawa supports the creative development of artists with intellectual disabilities. H’Art is an innovative visual arts studio whose unique art and literacy program promotes creative and cultural experiences, self-expression and independence. The artists exhibit, promote and sell their paintings through the studio, galleries and other community venues, and online. This provides the artists an opportunity to participate in society in a meaningful way, and contributes to the growing general public awareness that persons with disabilities can live rich, productive and fulfilling lives.
