Empowering People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities to Lead Fuller Lives

Activity of the Month

The individuals who attend the Milton Avenue Day Hab had the opportunity to display some of their artwork at the New Dorp Center’s Annual Art Show. Collaboratively, with the art instructor, they selected some of their themed paintings and sculptures for this exhibit. These talented artists look forward to attending art classes every Wednesday at the agency’s Creative Arts Network, which provides them an outlet for their creative expression.

Among the invited guests were friends, family, staff and community members who joined the artists in discussing, viewing and celebrating their creative works. This special group of artists provided refreshments for this event, and even baked homemade chocolate chip cookies for those in attendance. As we celebrate all of our artists and their many accomplishments, we would like to mention a very special honor bestowed upon one artist in particular. Nicholas’ artwork was submitted and selected by the, Staten Island Arts project “UNEXPECTED RE:VIEWS – CALL FOR ARTWORK” and will be on display in different community locations.
