Artisitc Ability Project
Posted on Mar 02, 2017 at 0:00 AM
Imagine a world where you are unable to communicate. A world where you are trapped inside your body. A world where you have so much to contribute, but cannot seem to find the right way to get it out there. A world where you want to work, but maybe have trouble finding a meaningful job. This may seem extreme, but for some people it is a reality.
Art can open up a whole new world for someone. It provides an outlet for one to communicate feelings. It is an opportunity to take a picture or an idea in your head and make it into something tangible. With art, the possibilities are endless.
Through the desire of New Horizons Behavioral Health to bring out the creativity of adults with special needs, a partnership was formed with the Bo Bartlett Center. College of the Arts, Columbus State University, the Gallery on Tenth and the Columbus Museum dedicated to the ideal that CREATIVITY HAS NO BOUNDARIES. These volunteer organizations provide supplies, space, and guidance in order to help adults with special needs reach their full potential in the art world.
The “artists-in-training” have the opportunity to showcase their art on March 2, 2017 from 5-8 PM at the Columbus Museum. It is our sincere desire that the community at large show their support of this unique project by attending the event and meeting the artist mentors and artists -in-training.
