    • Creative Hearts Studio

      Carey Services’ Creative Hearts Art Studio was created in 2016 to provide a place for the individuals we serve to have a way to express themselves through various artistic mediums, including painting, sewing, sculpture, and music and movement. The studio artists sell their works and receive the revenue. In 2018, the artists created a sculpture that is displayed in a Marion city park, and many of their paintings are displayed in local offices and homes. The Expressions event is a large public art show each October that helps introduce people to the studio and the talented artists who create their works there.
