Classes meet for 34 weeks during the school year from September 2 to the end of May. Currently we are taking enrollment applications and interviews for Wednesdays at 11:00 AM going until Noon. Students may choose to stay and eat lunch until 1.
Tuition is $792 for the school year (pro-rated if you begin during the year).
There is a $99 supply fee (also pro-rated) for each day for the entire year.
We work to provide a safe and welcoming environment, that encourages artistic self-expression for adults with special needs. We tend to focus on the process of art, versus the final product. Becoming comfortable with various media and materials and learning specific art techniques allows students to feel confident even when on their own. We also value incorporating adaptive technologies as needed so that all ability levels can participate and work on improving their fine motor skills.
