Ateljee Eivor is a workspace for artists and artists with special needs at the Art Factory in Porvoo.
Atelier Eivor started a supported art activity at the Art Factory in February 2018. An artist with special needs needs guidance and help to be able to do his or her artistic work. Support is practical help with materials and equipment, as well as handling matters related to art activities, such as guidance in applying for exhibition times and grants.
Six-week work sessions are organized for the studio’s artists, with certain days of the week set aside for making art. The work is guided and assisted by a professional artist, and the development of the artists is reinforced by art exhibition and gallery visits. Relatives and those who provide day activities and housing services are consulted in the planning of working days.
The artists in the studio come from the Porvoo, Pornainen and Järvenpää areas.
