We also provide a transitional program to young adults coming out of high school who are interested in gaining a few years of work experience before transitioning on to other employment programs.

Work of Art

Work of Art Studios and Gallery provides many choices for artists. The Work of Art program is a vibrant, progressive venture designed to bring out the talents and abilities of all artists, and develop self-confidence through artistic expression. We offer workshops, classes, and open studio for artists to create original artwork and develop their artistic voice. Finished works can be submitted to the Gallery Committee for exhibition and sale through the Work of Art Gallery or other exhibitions in the community.

 Work of Art has just begun the process of opening our four studios to the public. We offer classes in painting, drawing, ceramics, textiles, printmaking, mixed media, music, and digital art. These studios are a place where people of all abilities and interests can work side-by-side to discover their artistic voice. For more information, visit our website through the link below:
