Great Hearts Initiatives | The Arts of Life

Mission

We are people with and without disabilities creating an artistic culture to realize our full potential.

The Arts of Life, Inc. is committed to providing high quality, innovative services for adults with developmental disabilities. The studio focuses on its artists’ needs and strives to exceed expectations. The Arts of Life will continue to be characterized by both dedication to its artists and excellence in the field of developmental disabilities.

We started as twelve individuals with a passion for artistic expression and a need for an alternative system. Three of us partnered up: a 70-year-old woman with an intellectual disability and a mental illness, a self-taught, unconventional artist, and a professional in the field of developmental disabilities. We brought nine other people together who were living in a residential setting and had a developmental disability.

Our shared vision was to create a working, person-centric, artistic community that provided a work environment of equality. We’re proud to keep this vision a reality everyday.
