Our Mission

Muck Duck Studio’s mission is to empower individuals, organizations, and
businesses, both locally in Rochester, NY, and globally, through the transformative power of creativity. We combine a diverse range of art forms, including somatic experiences, music, visual arts, and environmentalism, to inspire and engage people from all walks of life.

Our primary focus is on nurturing emotional, physical, and social well-being, as well as fostering resilience, and building vibrant communities. We champion innovation and experimentation to create enduring and meaningful change.

Muck Duck Studio is dedicated to catalyzing positive transformations, one person at a time, ultimately contributing to individual and collective empowerment.


Art Unites Us & Helps Us Thrive

Through participating in an artform such as playing music, or painting, we learn more about who we are and how to express our inner being. The introspective nature of art combined with community is making a difference in people’s lives every day, and we are here to help bring that opportunity to our Rochester community.

A harmonious community


Achieving social and emotional wellness through art is at the heart of Muck Duck’s mission.
