West Virginia Center for Excellence in Disabilities

For people with disabilities, the arts represent a world of opportunities, as well as a vehicle for creative expression. In an effort to mainstream and expose people with developmental and other disabilities to the world of arts and culture, the CAC and the CED promotes the creative power in people with disabilities. The Fine Arts program provides opportunities for people with developmental and other disabilities to explore the unlimited possibilities for personal, academic and professional success.

Using the mediums of photography, painting/visual arts program (traditional and experimental oil and acrylic painting), music program, ceramics, sculpture, dance/theatre and puppeting, the Fine Arts program explores the artistic self-expression of people with severe to mild disabilities.
