The Vocational Arts Program at the Art Connection is therapeutically based, from which individuals explore the possibilities of art-making as a viable and meaningful profession. This therapeutic environment allows for individualized programming for personal success and creative self-expression. The Vocational Arts Program provides specialized instruction in the areas of painting, mixed media, jewelry design, textile design, sculpture, paper & fiber arts, creative photography, and screen printing. This program is unique and specialized in that concrete skill building is offered in a therapeutic milieu, unlike traditional vocational environments. At the heart of this program is the belief that positive and nurturing relationships are a powerful agent for growth and healing.
