Support Artistic Expressions Program Before June 30 Deadline

Support our Artistic Expressions program that helps adults with developmental disabilities before our June 30 deadline.

The Hunterdon Art Museum's Artistic Expressions program is so much more than a class. Through the program, students discover an avenue of multi-sensory stimulation, have the chance to enhance critical social skills by working with teachers and other students, and experience an open studio with close personal instruction and guidance from dedicated art teachers.

An open studio means it’s all about choice.  Students are presented with a variety of materials and are encouraged to express their own vision in this fun, supportive class. The instructor offers guidance on using the materials, but the students are in charge of making all the creative choices.

The benefits of the Artistic Expressions program are significant. Students show improvements in cognitive function; make significant progress in fine and gross motor skills including hand-eye coordination and dexterity. And they gain confidence by creating and completing their own unique works of art.
Simply put, Artistic Expressions touches lives in ways that are simple, yet profound.

We seek your help in supporting our Artistic Expressions program. To meet our fundraising goal, we need to raise $5,000 by June 30. We ask you to consider making a gift of $500, $100, $50 or whatever you can afford, to support this unique—and greatly needed—program.
