ArtSparks was established in 1995, as part of Harc’s Life Enrichment Program, a day program for senior citizens with intellectual disability.
ArtSparks provides a quiet, focused time for our artists to create original watercolor and oil stick paintings under the direction of a practicing artist.
In making and showing their art, our artists have gained a wonderful sense of community involvement with their exhibits. They also have tremendous satisfaction and pride in seeing their work respected and valued as it is shown in various venues in Greater Hartford.
ArtSparks paintings and other products are for sale, and since 1995 the ArtSparks artists have participated in many dedicated shows and group exhibits. They have collectively earned over $21,000 with the sale of their original paintings, benefiting both Harc and themselves.
Thank you for your interest in ArtSparks and our terrific artists!
