Art for Wholeness: Community Creativity
- The Center’s community outreach program, Art for Wholeness: Community Creativity, began in 2006. The purpose of the program is to help children and adults cope with difficulties through a creative and constructive manner in order to promote wholeness and healing. The program helps enhance personal growth, deepen self-awareness, and offers a constructive outlet for handling emotional distress. We partner with several area agencies and organizations to bring the power of art education to the community.
Inspire commits itself to maintaining a welcoming environment for all people and extends its welcome in particular to those who may be vulnerable to discrimination on the basis of their race, ethnicity, religion, age, gender, disabilities, or sexual orientation.
