Arts for Socialization Classes

Through the Arts for Socialization Classes, people with developmental disabilities enjoy a wide range of hands-on art activities that challenge them to try new experiences while benefiting from:

  • Using different parts of their brain
  • Learning new skills
  • Improving hand/eye coordination
  • Socializing and cooperating with others in group projects

The Arts for Socializationclasses help consumers turn "I can^t" into "I can!" Faced with a new experience, consumers may feel unsure, awkward and self-conscious.PEP^s supportive staff members and volunteershelp consumers overcome their fears, experience success, and develop self-confidence!

Consumer art is displayed with pride at PEP, but the true results are the fun memories, success and changed attitudes that consumers walk away with.

The Arts for Socialization Program offers painting, clay sculptures, gardening, computer art, cultural outings, scrap booking, and more. Click on the link below to view consumers with their artwork.

Most classes meet one night a week from 4:00 - 6:00pm. Sessions are from six to eight weeks.
