Planet Joy

One of the most unique features of Peaceworks is Planet Joy, an in- house art studio attached to Intervention for Peace. Modeled heavily after Passion Works in Athens, Ohio, Planet Joy seeks to spread art into our local community and beyond.

Planet Joy is a collaborative art studio that encourages adults with developmental differences to explore their imagination and creativity through the arts. Our desire is to share the beauty of our individuals with the world through their joyful art.

Planet Joy features art and expression of all kinds: painting, drawing, sewing, silk screening, art installation, etc. With the teachings and direction of other professional artists, Planet Joy artists improve their skills, knowledge and ability to express themselves with various mediums. 

“Joy is what we bring, art is how we do it!”
