Scholarships Available for Art With Heart & Artistic Expressions

We're offering four scholarships this fall for our Art With Heart class for teens and pre-teens, and 10 scholarships to our Artistic Expressions classes for adults. Both are open studio programs designed for those with special needs, physical limitations, developmental disabilities and/or any neurodiversity.

In both programs, students are encouraged to express their own vision in a fun and nurturing environment. They are presented with a choice of art materials to discover what they enjoy working with best. Art-making topics are tailored to students’ interests, and include drawing, painting, sculpting, mixed media and fiber arts.

Art With Heart for children ages 5 to 16 runs for four Saturdays starting September 24, at 1:30 p.m.

Artistic Expressions has two classes available starting Tuesday, Sept. 24 or Thursday, Sept. 26 and running for 10 weeks. Both classes are from 6:30 to 8 p.m.; scholarships can be used for either class.

All scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Deadline to apply is September 9.

Scholarships are made possible thanks to a grant from Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Investors Foundation and donations by generous individuals.
