Thought of Element Present


Atelier Element Present is a private art studio for people with Down syndrome.

They are essentially all talented and the standard of work is excellent .

We can plainly see how their spirits are expressed in their art works, the gentle harmonies liberating the senses.

We have created an environment where artists with Down Syndrome can continue creating their works of art with their own rhythm, expanding in their hearts an energy that leads to good health and happiness.

We wish to carry on this activity allowing the abundance and expressions from their hearts to continue to be known and seen to be useful and appreciated by society.
