Experience the transformative impact of The Arc’s dedicated instructors, guiding students with intellectual and developmental disabilities on a journey of artistic self-expression. Our program emphasizes client-directed goals, self-determination, social skills, and the enhancement of employment skills, fostering a sense of independence and pride.

As we daily bridge the gap in post-secondary education support for the I/DD community and their families, our Art and Education Program offers a unique approach. Clients have the freedom to choose from a variety of courses tailored to their interests. Engage in artistic exploration across various mediums, creating works showcased and sold professionally at art shows, local businesses, and online.
