Working collaboratively with other students, the program provides a safe and inclusive environment for creative language that instills self-worth, ability and respect.
Along with developing new art skills, participants will have the opportunity to have their artwork displayed at the culminating Kindred Spirits Exhibit, held in our Access II Gallery each July-August.

Kindred Spirits Coordinator
This program is provided in part under a contract with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
The Kindred Spirits program was founded in 2003 by Alice Perrault, a professional artist and parent of a son living with profound disabilities. Alice believed children of all abilities could come together and flourish in a nurturing, artistic environment. This program was adopted by Art Access in 2011 and has become a popular and well-regarded children's art program in our community.
