Our Kaleidoscope program provides visual art classes for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Participants are exposed to a variety of media including, but not limited to, watercolor, acrylics, collage and clay. Instructors create lessons designed to reach students at their own skill level and provide one-on-one attention to ensure each student's success. Students have the freedom to experiment with the materials and express themselves in a variety of ways, while being challenged as they improve their artistic skills.
