NIAD Art Center
Mentored by skilled professionals (all of the staff hold a Masters of Fine Arts degree and are themselves accomplished artists), NIAD’s artists see and study contemporary art by visiting local galleries, studios and museums. Inspired, they return to the NIAD open studio to create their own work. The NIAD studio environment has been described by visitors and participants alike as inclusive, nurturing, and welcoming. Here are the features of NIAD’s program: NIAD provides professional guidance for clients, imparting both artistic and independent living skills. NIAD proffers a way for adults with disabilities to explore creativity, acquire new skills, and earn money from selling art. NIAD offers talented and skilled staff with connections in the contemporary art world and fosters a supportive community and environment.
