Arts In / Arts Out

In this core program, artists with disabilities participate in arts workshops taught by faculty who are working artists in their fields. Arts In / Arts Out workshops provide stimulating and creative opportunities for our artists to develop new skills and achieve broader goals. These workshops take place across Berkshire and Columbia counties in residences, day habilitation programs, schools, and eldercare settings, as well as in CATA’s own studio in Great Barrington, MA.
