“Our program has an expressive art focus: where little art experience can have wonderful outcomes.”

Join us in our peaceful studio space. This community visual art program is tailored to persons with developmental disabilities but is accessible to everyone.

MAGsparks participants experience numerous art forms including drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture. Clay is offered during the summer. Professional artists on staff are in the studio to help with projects. The program offers scheduled activities throughout the year. As well, the Open Studio allows participants to work in their preferred medium.
