Riverside has created an art program providing individuals with the necessary tools to explore their own creative potential and employment opportunities through self-expression. This program provides people with disabilities an in-depth, perhaps first time, opportunity to make art and exhibit their work in the community.
We believe every individual has the potential to flourish through the creative process. Participating in the arts gives individuals a sense of purpose, self-empowerment, and community. Exhibitions of artwork provide opportunities to share these accomplishments with others creating self-esteem and pride in achievements. Art exhibits foster awareness in the broader community and promote community involvement and inclusion.
The products that are produced through Riverside Arts are handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces of art. Each purchase provides employment to a person with disabilities and funds our art program.
