Our first of many art events – more will be added!

The arts are important to any community, but especially to the disability community. We will have arts of every kind – dance, poetry, mural making, films. Events will be interactive, performance, and/or theory. Geared to the young (at heart) to the seasoned professional.

Daniel Cascardo’s  approach to art is to interpret life in a very positive and thought provoking manner through the use of uninhibited brush strokes, bright colors, patterns, symbols and various forms of nature, including fantastic birds and fish, that let your imagination soar. He will introduce to you his mural art, his method, and begin a project with you.


Plan to download a section of an art piece (not the one above) to color in as you choose. Create one together as a family or  do multiples on your own.  Everyone welcome.

Send your finished work back by August 6th  via email They will be combined with others to make a mural. A big reveal will take place on August 11th.
