EP!Casso

The EP!Casso Art Studio & Gallery supports the exploration of art through regularly scheduled art classes and lessons. Participants create paintings, glassware, ceramics, and more with the support and guidance of art specialists.

Art therapy also provides many benefits for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It can be a new avenue of expression for those with verbal impairments, help develop cognitive skills, enhance self-esteem and self-awareness, improve fine motor skills, and express emotion healthily.

EP!Casso pieces have been featured at local galleries, businesses and sold at auctions and Pop-up events. These opportunities have allowed us to showcase the creativity and skill of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  When a piece of art is purchased, the artist receives a commission on each piece sold.

This program is funded largely in part through grants provided by the Community Foundation of Central Illinois
