Community Connections Art is a free program for children with special needs ages 3-18. The series of 8 classes allow children to explore their creativity in a positive, encouraging environment, while simultaneously allowing them to explore their senses in new and exciting ways. Each week students have the opportunity to explore a new artistic medium, including acrylic paint, watercolor, colored pencil, crayon, charcoal, and craft materials. Projects are designed to challenge the students both physically and creatively. Physical and sensory stimulation is encouraged through an exploration of materials, such as finger-paints. Students are challenged to think outside of the box and afterwards they are encouraged to describe their work to the class. Kids get a chance to socialize with one another, and everyone gets a chance to view and compliment the works of others at the end of class.
