our workshops

Creative Expression Workshops, a not-for-profit art program for adults has the specific goal of helping people with special needs find a vehicle for communicating their thoughts, feelings, joys and frustrations through artistic means.

The Workshops provide opportunities for individuals facing challenges to discover new ways to express themselves through the arts that include visual arts, poetry, music, painting, etc. Our workshops help them find their creative voices, gain self-confidence through social inclusion, and increase awareness of their individuality.
