The Enrichment Center

The 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.

The 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.

EVERY DAY, WE PROVIDE A FORUM FOR EXPLORATION AND LEARNING IN THE VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS FOR ADULT ARTISTS WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES, SO THAT THEY MIGHT CONTINUE TO DEVELOP THEIR WORK, EXPRESSION, AND EXPERIENCE.

IF WE’VE PIQUED YOUR INTEREST… IF YOU’D LIKE TO SEE (OR SHOP FOR) AWESOME ART… IF YOU WANT TO LEARN ABOUT ENROLLMENT… IF YOU WANT TO LEARN ABOUT WORKING WITH US… VISIT THE EC’S WEBSITE.

THE PROGRAM

Renting rooms on the 3rd floor of the Merced Multicultural Arts Center in downtown Merced, the EC provides a program of studio practice and instruction in the visual and performing arts, 5 hours per day (9am-2pm), 5 days per week (Mon-Fri), 12 months per year. The EC artists work in a safe, supportive, and positive studio environment, provided by EC staff at a ratio of no less than 1 to 8 clients on-site, and 1 to 4 clients off-site.

The EC is a licensed community care facility, providing services to a maximum of 24 artists with developmental disabilities. The Merced County Arts Council is the licensee.
