Project Abstract

At Arts of Life, the experience is like no other. Everyone in this organization is so supportive of each other, everyone wants to see everyone succeed, and interning here never fails to bring a smile. Artist mentors provide feedback and advice to both group programming, as well as, one on one meetings with individual artists. Those meetings are always fun. The mission is to advance the creative arts community by providing artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities, a collective space to expand their practice, and strengthen their leadership. The organization provides artists with disabilities access to an otherwise hard scene: the art scene! For the safety of both the artists and staff, group activities have been moved to remote programming, as a result of this, the organization also provides them with art supplies that they had access to in the studio, iPads for online programming, headphones, etc. If an artist does want to work in the studio, it is a very limited capacity, with everyone in their own area (with masks of course). Arts of Life is rewarding and the connections made with the artists and other staff have a positive impact in one’s life forever. The end of my presentation will conclude with application information for future interns.
