We partner with Opportunity Enterprises (OE), well established in the community for serving adults with disabilities.

A culminating exhibition of student work is held annually during developmental disabilities awareness month in March.

$15 per session 

The "Art in the Park" series of events is hosted by the Indiana Dunes National Park in partnership with the Art Barn School of Art. Classes are open to beginners, and accessible to those with physical limitations and each session features a different theme related to the National Park or dunes. 

 

Art Barn instructor Dori Huber will guide students through the process of painting a scene inspired by the dunes. By coming together our organizations are collectively able to accomplish a common goal of reaching more individuals through cultural programming that links art and nature together.
