Inclusion Melbourne is Victoria’s oldest day service for adults with an intellectual disability. We believe that people with a disability should be able to live in an inclusive community, supported by people who genuinely care for them, and have the same opportunities to participate in community life.
Art mentors volunteer one-on-one with artists, often leading to the formation of great friendships. Volunteers and artists enjoy working at a studio or other locations, with mentors sometimes supporting artists to prepare for exhibitions or craft markets. They may also visit galleries or libraries to gain inspiration that helps to develop and encourage the artist's technique.
Art mentors at Inclusion Melbourne come from a variety of backgrounds:painters, illustrators, sculptors and photographers or anyone who is passionate about the arts.
Art mentors live across Melbourne and come from a range of cultural backgrounds. Our art mentors bring their skills and experience to inspire and guide the artists, giving them freedom to indulge their creativity.
