about Ripehouse

In 2011 Art school Ripehouse started. Now 2 artists teach painting mainly to people for special needs, especially autism. 25 people are studying art, and many of them have experienced solo or group exhibitions.

Our hope is that they will establish relations to society through their art works.

Ripehouse is progressing with them.
