Monthly Art & Special Events


Monthly arts workshops, Extreme Teens, and other citywide events happen regularly throughout the year. These free events were conceived so that children with disabilities, their parents and siblings, can reap the rewards of live music and varying arts in a low key and understanding atmosphere.
