Art from the Heart
Building Self-Awareness and Self-Esteem
At Peckham, we believe there are no limitations to creative expression, and that the decisions involved in the creative process provides opportunities to build self-awareness, confidence. Art from the Heart provides a supportive environment for artists with disabilities to explore a wide variety of mediums with professional, individualized instruction.
Participants have the opportunity for creative expression and can work at their own pace and make choices about subject matter, size and color.
Peckham is committed to advocating for the integration of these artists into the greater art community. As a result, Art from the Heart artists have the opportunity to exhibit at community venues throughout the year. Artist who sell their work receive a percentage of the sale price as payment. The remaining percentage from each sale goes to the program to help cover the cost of program offerings and art supplies.
Art from the Heart is supported by the Peckham Community Partnership Foundation to provide opportunities in the visual arts to people with significant disabilities.
