Art Gems is the annual fundraising art auction in support of Creative Works Studio. Since 2007, your generosity and support has enabled Art Gems to raise nearly $2,000,000 for this life-changing mental health program in downtown Toronto. Together we are making positive change in the lives of the many Studio members, who, through this rehabilitative therapeutic program, experience healing, increased self-esteem and the return of important life skills through their participation in the arts.

Join us on Thursday April 18, 2024

“Creative Works Studio offered me a refuge from a life of problems and mental health struggles. Upon becoming a member, I suddenly had someplace to go, a place to be safe, and a place where I could learn new things. What a joy to have professional and peers be a part of my life, my journey to recovery. To know that “you’re not alone” is a priceless treasure.”
