New Art Classes at the Center for Independent Living!

The CIL is proud to announce that we now have art classes!

Group homes and consumers of the CIL are welcome to attend these class every Monday and Friday from 1-2:30 p.m.

“The classes give them something different to do. It’s really good because it gives them something to do outside of peer support,” said Mark Brisbane, head of Peer Support and Peer Support Groups.

Art classes are considered to be therapeutic and a great way for people to express themselves and their creativity.

The first class was on Monday, the 13th of February, and it was a success. There was great participation as they were drawing and painting spheres.

The materials are provided by the CIL and Mar Dominguez, who introduced the arts in medicine program to the CIL in the form of these classes.

The CIL is excited to develop these art classes and to see more people enjoying them!
