Music Makers Performance: Spring and Summer SongsEnjoy songs about spring and summer songs performed on a variety of instruments. One of the songs that will be performed is an original piece that was collectively written by members of the Music Makers group!

Art Makers: Spring Exhibit. Enjoy original artwork in varied mediums created by our Art Makers class.

Through the use of Creative Arts Therapies, individuals with special needs, which include mental, physical or developmental disabilities, are encouraged to maximize their potential. Using art, dance/movement and music as a therapeutic tool, individuals address academic, motor, emotional, and social skills as well as develop talents in the fine arts. Each participant receives individualized attention with personally designed goals tailored to meet his/her needs.
