Enrichment Center (EC) is a visual and performing
arts-based day program for adult artists with developmental
disabilities. The program was established in 2000
as an option for medium to high functioning adults
who had a desire to participate in the arts.
program operates under the premise that the arts
are a valid, qualitative means of human expression,
knowing, and understanding of ourselves, each other,
and how we live in the world. We believe that expression
through the arts is a primal method of communication
and understanding between humans.
