The Arc of the Capital Area Arts Education Program

Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The Art Education Program is a daily program offered by The Arc of the Capital Area! Clients with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) explore artistic mediums and create artwork that is professionally shown and sold at art shows, local businesses, and online. Our professional instructors help students to find an artistic means to best express themselves. This provides a program that promotes client-directed goals and self-determination. We actively bridge the gap of post-secondary education support for the I/DD community and their families. The Arc of the Capital Area strives to create an artistic avenue for students to learn to better express themselves, increase social skills, and gain a sense of independence and pride!

Private pay and provider pay options are available.
