The Stone Art Studio is a program of The Mia St. John “El Saber es Poder” Foundation , a non-profit social service organization. The mission of the Stone Art Program is to inspire healing, growth and learning through engagement in the arts for the culturally underserved.

The Stone Art Studio was started by the Founder’s son, Julian St. John, a talented up and coming artist that suffered from Schizophrenia. Julian passed away at the age of twenty four on November 23, 2014, but his art and his passion lives on through “Stone Art”, a name he had chosen for his studio prior to his passing.

The program also works to raise public awareness and acceptance of the creative talents of people living with psychiatric disorders. Art encourages self-expression, self-discovery and emotional growth; for these reasons, it has been used in the treatment of mental illness for many years.

Individuals at Stone Art are encouraged to visualize, and then create, the thoughts and emotions that they cannot talk about. Membership is free for teens and adults who are either culturally underserved, homeless or have a diagnosis of persistent mental illness from a psychiatrist, therapist, or medical doctor.

Millions of Americans are living with serious mental illness. Many are talented people that find joy simply with a canvas and brush.

Boxing for fitness is also offered at the Stone Art Studio, as well as at "Step Up" in Santa Monica, California.

Stone Art Studio is located at 19465 N. Indian Canyon Drive Suite 3R Palm Springs, California Hours of operation are from 10am to 6pm 7 days a week.
