It is offered at no cost to the participants. The program’s goal is to provide a creative outlet designed to allow these individuals the opportunity to have a successful, joyful art experience.

Multi-disciplinary curriculum includes both visual arts and music to optimize creative response, social interaction with other individuals and positive self esteem. The works of art on exhibit are produced through a process based approach with joyful and stunning results.

Art & Music Camp for Special Needs – Coming in June 2022!

Thank you to our 2021 program sponsors

Our instructor, Carter Boucher, is a visual artist, writer, and musician. He is an Arts Access SC master artist, an active artist in residence through the South Carolina Arts Commission since 1981, and has extensive experience teaching art to children with disabilities. He reaches each child right where they are.

Our hope is that our community will continue to recognize the value in programs which may impact a small population on a deeper level. We strive to meet the needs of our community on an individual as well as ongoing basis, providing interactions and experiences that will have a lasting impact on their lives. Our Art & Music Camp for Special Needs extends the reach of the arts to this underserved population.
