Our Mobile Art Studio Service

We run a Mobile Art Studio Service that provides group art lessons throughout the Greater New Haven area. We currently run this service to the Alzheimer's & Dementia wing of Brookdale Senior Living in Woodbridge; after school art mini-courses at the Foote School, we run an art group at the West Haven Mental Health Clinic, and we work with artists from the Parents' Foundation, a transitional living facility for people living with schizophrenia. We've also taught art classes in the Pediatric Oncology & Hematology Departments at Yale New Haven Children's Hospital, New Haven Free Public Library, Fellowship Place, Casa Otoñal, and the Conte West Hills School.
