Creativity and work, the cornerstone that Mindscape is built upon. This requires an ample supply of paints, clay, glazes, papers, canvas, pencils, pens, glue, markers, etc. It's a long list. We have a stock pile waiting to be used. Of course the tools needed to manipulate these materials are also in abundance within our shop and studios. Supplies, tools and talent has the work of art driving our artists.

Art as work for those with TBI is what Mindscape was begun for. This venture requires an array materials and tools - paints, clay, glazes, papers, canvas, pencils, pens, glue, markers and on. Often with new projects or one of a kind, one off pieces very specific supplies will be brought in. We keep an extensive inventory of supplies with rooms packed with tools needed to manipulate materials into art. Our studio is a busy collective where art is craft and product.

Blanca is one extraordinarily kind, caring, dedicated, gentle soft spoken person. One of the most generous people you will ever meet. We are lucky to have her on staff as a house manager and caregiver. She is here to help one of our artists home but first spends a few minutes going over some house business with our director then makes the rounds to greet everyone and share a bit of her spirit. We have a great team!

Justina is one of our skills instructors, caregivers and artist in her own right. Always on the move in between her primary assignment for the day, Justina lends a hand, word of encouragement and support wherever needed. Here she spends a little time with Cathy, one of our incredibly talented visually impaired artist, to simply spend some all important time just listening. Our staff are as unique and talented as the artists they assist!

Back in the machine shop, Bruce is diligently seeing to his ongoing project of refinishing a large desk. Working through the first phase of stripping the old finish is the most time consuming. Not a problem for Bruce, he's a tireless worker even with the more physically demanding and tedious work. If he should be interrupted you'll find yourself greeted with a giant smile and thorough run down of the project. The shop is always humming with activity, music and the sounds of a true working shop.

Marty is busy over in the ceramics station where the task of sorting and storing some recently fired pieces is underway. Eventually the small ceramics will be assembled into wind chimes. Marty is always eager to jump in and get to work, a unique and kind man, if help is not needed he's equally ready to engage in some light-hearted chit-chat.

Kenny is a driven, consistent artists who works hours on end seeing to his craft, he happens also to be visually impaired. Using a keen sense of touch and finely honed tactile recognition with an abundance of patience, Kenny creates multi-colored threads into wearable art, necklaces, pendants, chokers and bracelets using a weaving method called Kumihimo braiding. This technique is believed to have originated in Japan as far back as 645 AD. Adapted so those who have lost their sight may weave. This weaving has great versatility and our artists use that to weave!

Ken is one of our visually impaired artist as are the ladies to his right and left, Juanita and Cathy. With incredible focus, dexterity and patience, they work at specially designed workstations to create multi-colored threads into wearable art, necklaces, pendants, chokers and bracelets using a weaving method called Kumihimo braiding. This technique is believed to have originated in Japan as far back as 645 AD. Adapted so those who have lost their sight may weave.

Julie is at the ceramics station where she is taking this opportunity to read over some material while the studio is in a rare state of relative quiet. Our artists are currently in between projects with the work day winding down. When not seeing to the minutiae of the paper work aspect of making art, Julie is assisting clients with or involved in her own art projects.

Jessica, our director of quality assurance covers a lot of territory at Mindscape. Today she needed a few minutes to discuss some details of operation with our director of ABI services who just happen to be in the main studio. Attention to schedules and client needs requires an organized and thorough team, Jessica sees to these details to be certain nothing is overlooked.

A great day to work outside! One of our wood workers and craftsman, Pete, is busy painting one of several benches the crew in the shop have built. John is working here with Jack as they map out a plan to be busy while not over doing it in the heat. Our team is talented, understands the needs and limitations of clients while also being resourceful to find a compromise between creativity and comfort. Jack, as always, handled the situation with persistence and kindness.

It takes a great deal of work and careful attention to keep not just the art studios running smoothly, but the very careful and all important task of providing transportation to our clients. It doesn't stop there. Mindscape has a number of properties that our clients call home, these homes are staffed by Mindscape caregivers and house managers. Overseeing all of this is Darryl L., our director of ABI services and the hardest working man here. Here he is discussing a matter brought to him by one of our house managers.

We have quite a cast of unique characters helping with the daily operations of our art programs and studios. This roguish gent, Paul G., oversees and assists the visually impaired artists. He is involved at every stage of the work, keeps the supplies and at the end of the day makes sure the artists are safely transported home. A skills instructor, caregiver, coach and spirited member of the team, Paul knows how to keep things moving... And strike a pose!

With art comes expression, contemplation and reflection. Artist pull from within to create work. Kenny is one of our artists, typically always on the move, but sometimes it's a moment lost in thought that brings the next idea, project or solution to a problem; Kenny takes this opportunity to embrace some quiet thinking. Most busy artists do, it's essential to the work of creating art.

With a busy art studio packed with art supplies, tools, machines - all manner of materials for a variety of medium - artist working and buzzing around the space, etc. Well, as one would expect, the space gets dirty. The sign of a successful art machine at work. Of course at the days end our artists see to the work of clean up too. Pete and Bob, two of our wood workers and craftsman, work together to sweep and clean the studio floors. True working artists make messes!

During the work day, our skills instructors, artists, clients and staff all stay focused and busy with the task at hand. However, when the day is done and we all have opportunity to unwind, share the days events and hang with each other for a bit; the topics often get the entire studio involved and laughing. Leroy, one of our gifted artists, can attest to this as he's caught up as skill instructor Cassandra provides the topic for "debate." ...you had to be there. ;-)

Shelby is working on some early stage ceramic pieces with the attentive and kind Victoria, on of our artists and skills instructors. As you can see, they've got quite a task at hand. Dozens of pieces are waiting to be enhanced with some decorative design and shaping. Shelby is discussing ideas as she and Victoria prepare to get busy. Looks daunting, but it all begins with a little collaboration and a plan.

Juanita is one of our visually impaired artists, spirited and unique as much as talented and driven. Just beyond her is Daniel, also one of our gifted artists who also happens to be visually impaired, he's a tireless artist. Both work at specially designed workstations to create using a weaving method called Kumihimo braiding, an ancient braiding technique believed to have originated in Japan as far back as 645 AD. Adapted so those who have lost their sight may weave. This weaving has great versatility and our artists use that to weave multi-colored threads into wearable art, necklaces, pendants, chokers and bracelets!

The joy of art! Leroy shows his genuine look of contentment as he has made his way down from the fine art studio, a place where he has really discovered a talent and found a voice. From finding outlet for expression to providing a method to focus, relax and concentrate, the art program has had a remarkable impact on every client who has been involved. Leroy's work continues to impress while bringing that sometimes elusive sense of accomplishment and tranquility.
