Open Door Studio Welcomes You

Opening doors for artists of all abilities 

Opening its doors in 2021, we are proud to serve the Ventura County community by providing a gallery and studio space for local arts operated by a team of artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities, providing quality life and work experience. We promote art, diversity, and inclusion.
All group classes, commissions, and sales directly benefit the artists and support the studio.

You are the Key.


As the only creative studio such as this in Ventura County, we attribute our reputation to the lasting relationships we’ve developed and successful projects we have collaborated on with our team of artists of all dis/abilities. We believe that every artist should have the opportunity to share their talents - and we have created a safe space to make that happen.

Artist Residency Program for artists of all abilities

Open Door Studio is a mentorship program for artists with all abilities. Local mentors serving the autism (and other intellectual and developmental) and arts communities teamed together to create Open Door Studio & Gallery in Oxnard, CA.
