Monthly Art & Special Events
Monthly arts workshops and other citywide events happen regularly throughout the year. These 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.
Events change month-to-month, check back soon to RSVP for your favorites.
Sun. 10/6, 10-12 p.m.
