Arts In / Arts Out

“CATA has given me my art. I never knew I had this in me.” –Carol (CATA artist)

 

 

In CATA’s 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 CATA artists to develop new skills and achieve broader goals.

 

Workshops take place across Berkshire and Columbia counties in residences, day habilitation programs, schools, and eldercare settings, as well as in CATA’s own studios in Great Barrington, MA.

CATA’s Arts In / Arts Out workshops include:

Creative Writing

Drumming

Juggling

Modern Dance

Singing and Songwriting

Tap Dance

Theater

Visual Art

(painting, drawing, sculpture, etc)

Yoga

Abstract landscape painting with horizontal stripes of various colors. From Bottom to top: red, black, orange, yellow, orange, green, purple, blue, purple. Layered on top of painting are small amounts of white splatter paint.

And more!
