About Art & Soul
We envision Art & Soul to be a permeable environment–not only would we invest in opportunities for people in the community, but also encourage and build community presence in our studio.
We aim to:
Build Social Capital and Community Partnership by bringing in community mentors to share their talents.
Develop our participants' dignity and worth, by providing a space for creative growth and choice. All the while educating the community about people with disabilities.
Host artists to offer their talents and inspiration to adults with disabilities participating in our art classes, and engage community members through art shows, public receptions, open houses, and exhibitions.
