creating through love & opportunity
We serve our community through meaningful arts and cultural activities
For differently abled adults in Montgomery and surrounding counties, Many Colors Arts Collective is a place to lose themselves in the joy and exploration of the arts and to find themselves in the loving company of friends and mentors.
To create a joy-filled community of regularly and differently-abled artists in a safe and beautiful environment.
Many Colors provides abundant opportunities to create art in a wide variety of media. Our cognitive and neurosensory-divergent artists receive tools, support and encouragement from mentors and volunteer friends. Goals include developing life and work skills that increase the artists’ sense of self-worth. Our artists will also have the opportunity to offer their artwork for sale, with the majority of the proceeds going to the creator.
For families with differently-abled adults who cannot function independently, Many Colors offers them the reassurance that their loved one is engaged in meaningful activity in a supportive community.
The Many Colors Arts Collective came into being thanks to the vision and generosity of the Episcopal Church of the Holy Comforter. Holy Comforter continues to support us financially and by allowing us to operate in its facilities
A Safe Place
For Creative Expression for Adults with Special Needs
Through Opportunity to Engage in the Creative Process
The arts and cultural activities unify people. They reach across real and imaginary dividing lines, creating a shared experience for all of humanity. Personal interpretations are shared & relationships are forged.
That bring meaning, purpose and fulfillment to people
Studies have shown that arts programs reduce stress and improve the mental health of participants. Additionally, participants find intention, direction and belonging through strokes of color, rhythm and movement, and other forms of creative expression.
