StudioHeilpaedagogisches Centrum Augustinum (HPCA) is an institution for mentally disadvantaged artists, comprising of a studio community, a gallery and an art collection.
The studio is a supervised communal space where adults are encouraged to work as freelance, independent, commercial artists. It offers drawing, painting and graphic arts, as well as sculpture, supported by professional art assistants.
StatementThe goal of the studio is to give the work of its artists the success and significance it deserves. We help artists develop their own visual language and we offer personal and professional qualifications.
We communicate, promote, exhibit, publish and sell our artists work. We do this to help them earn a living and redefine themselves as artists. Our collection makes work available to other artists and the wider public.
