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.
