Art from the Heart serves adults with developmental disabilities who share an interest in exploring creativity in a community-driven environment. We require no previous arts experience, only a sincere desire to engage in and enjoy the art-making process. Art from the Heart is open to enrolled participants 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. The program provides time for independent work on creative projects and class instruction in drawing, painting, ceramics, wood, fiber arts, printmaking, bookmaking, theater, music and more. The program is enriched by field trips to museums, galleries, and artists’ studios; to local shops, parks and libraries; and through collaboration with other artists in the community. Artists produce art and craft that is for sale in the Art from the Heart gallery and to show in venues around the city.  At Art from the Heart, uncensored self-expression is encouraged and celebrated, and the art created here is authentic, uninhibited, and inspiring.
