Who We Serve
Shared Lives Studio (SLS) is committed to supporting people ages 18 and older that have developmental disabilities to reach their highest artistic and social dreams. SLS seeks to serve thriving artists to flourish in an inclusive community space.
Shared Lives Studio is an Artist-driven working art studio. Located in Hensville across from Fifth Third Field in Downtown Toledo, SLS is a nonprofit visual arts studio and gallery. SLS provides artists with disabilities with: paid work; studio space; art instruction and opportunities to exhibit and sell their artwork. SLS Artists are talented and hardworking. The SLS artists have a willingness to learn, interact with people and collaborate to express and create art. Artists are becoming members of the Greater Toledo Art Community, as Northwest Ohio celebrates the creative talents in all people.
