From Diana Minisci Appleton, ArtSparks Founder & Instructor about ArtSparks
ArtSparks was created as part of Harc’s Life Enrichment program, a day program for senior citizens with intellectual disability. In making and showing their art, our artists have gained a tremendous sense of community involvement with their exhibit, satisfaction in their accomplishments, and pride in seeing their work valued, respected and purchased. Artsparks paintings and other products are for sale, and since 1995 the ArtSparks artists have had sixteen dedicated shows and participated in twenty-five group exhibits. They have collectively earned over $15,000 with the sale of their original paintings, benefiting both Harc and themselves.
Harc, Inc. was founded in 1951 by parents of children with intellectual disability, long before programs and services were available. We help people with intellectual disability and their families by advocating for their human and civil rights and by providing community-based services throughout their lives. Their grassroots efforts led to partnerships with generous individuals and corporations to raise funds and create life-changing programs. Harc programs have national accreditation and licenses.
Today, Harc provides special needs support for a lifetime. Harc’s services begin at the birth of a child and support them throughout their life journey with programs such as Early Intervention & Autism Services, Recreation, Summer Camp, Behavioral Health Clinic, Supported Employment, Employment Readiness, Adult Day Services, Elderly Enrichment, Residential Services, Respite Care and Family Support.
