Featuring Young Artists with Disabilities
The performing and fine arts exist because of a profound human need to express ourselves. For many people, the arts serve as a way to connect to themselves and to others, and can enhance self-esteem and foster independence.
The Power of the Arts gives young people with disabilities the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents. At this premiere exhibition, our young visual artists will present their work under the instruction of Marc Dennis. Please join us!
