The Kaleidoscope Adapted Art program offers many opportunities to learn, grow, and socialize through art.

The Open Studio introduces participants to clay, sculpture, watercolor and acrylic painting, drawing, photography, oil pastels, mixed media, music, creative movement, and drama, all led by Art Therapy Express art therapists and guest artists.

Art Night with Your Best Buddy is a fun evening of painting and socializing at the art studio in partnership with Best Buddies Delaware and Art Therapy Express.

Our Summer Camp allows participants to transform their art with 6 principles of art (design, value, color, texture, risk and soul)! This 2 week (10 day) art camp jumpstarts self-expression, making it more authentic, personal and powerful. Our “inclusive” setting allows for all participants to create new friendships and joy while creating 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional “masterpieces” and engaging in movement and drama creative arts sessions.

Art Therapy Express Program, Inc., is a ten-year 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is to make the arts accessible to ALL people by promoting inclusive art programs where children and adults with disabilities work alongside non-disabled individuals to create art. Our goal is to create a welcoming environment where people with disabilities are part of a community in which they are able to express themselves through the arts.

Over 50 million Americans have a disability and nearly two-thirds of these individuals have a severe disability. People with disabilities are subject to social and community isolation and have minimal opportunities to participate in activities that offer cultural experiences and build meaningful, ongoing connections.

For 10 years, Art Therapy Express has successfully decreased isolation among those with moderate to severe disabilities by providing visual and expressive arts programs that allow people with disabilities to socialize and create art. Our art therapy classes and programs serve over 1,000 people annually in Delaware public schools, at the Delaware Art Museum and our own Kaleidoscope Art Studio.
