“I would sit in my room and dream of someday being on stage, always thinking I wasn’t good enough until I found Workshop 13. The welcome that I received from these amazing people was one that is indescribable. For the first time in my life I feel alive! Workshop13 has given me a stage to shine and made my dreams come true. Thank you!”

I’ve always had a passion for art, but unfortunately, the ability to paint was not something I was born with. Taking classes at Workshop13 has brought me joy in many ways. I’ve made friends while creating work that has evolved into something I can be proud of. My artistic journey has given me confidence to share a hidden part of me. Painting brings joy and peace to my life.
