Mobile Art Studio

We run a Mobile Art Studio that provides group art lessons throughout the Greater New Haven area. We currently run this service to the Alzheimer's & Dementia wing of The Linden in Woodbridge; Meadow Mills Assisted Living Center in Hamden; we run the young adult 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.
