Art and craft

A class specifically developed to provide a creative outlet for people with a disability. The focus of the class is independence through social interaction and self- expression. Participants work alongside an artist exploring a range of art mediums such as painting, paper mache, bead-making, printing, fabric painting, sculpture and lots more.

The aim of each program is that it be ‘participant-driven’, meaning that each member of the group has a say in the artistic direction of the program.
