Art is one of the ways the Aurora Commons loves this world, the community, the neighbor, and the self. Our art therapy program strives to offer a kind and supportive space for people to create, grow, and dive deep into their hearts. The Aurora Commons provides all the supplies and the space needed to create. Our art groups have focused on fear, on hope, and on the internal struggle we all face. We offer space for those among of us who are uniquely gifted to teach a class in their area of interest, such as making dream-catchers, beading, drawing, and writing. Aurora Commons art classes focus on performance art, self-portraits, drumming, body work, and all types of visual art.

THE COMMON ART GALLERY
The Common Art Gallery is a rotating collection of art pieces displayed in our space.
Having artwork in the space brings beauty & access to imagery that isn’t readily accessable to our unhoused neighbors.
Collections have ranged from a theme based show, with multiple artist contributing to an entire collection from a single artist to having our guests at the Commons make the art to hang.
