The Arc of the Capital Area, a 501 (c)(3) organization, is dedicated to providing personalized, community-based services that improve the quality of life for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their caregivers.
The Arc of the Capital Area’s offers a daily arts education program called The Arc of the Arts! Clients with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) explore artistic mediums and create artwork that is professionally shown and sold at art shows, local businesses, and online. Our professional artist instructors guide students to find an artistic facet that best allows them to express themselves. This provides a customized employment program that promotes client-directed goals and self-determination. We actively bridge the gap of post secondary education support for the I/DD community and families. The Arc of the Capital Area creates a family-like community where students learn to better express themselves, increase social skills, and gain a sense of independence and pride!
