Life Without Limits for People with Disabilities

In 1995 our Adaptive Arts Program started out as an opportunity for a small group of individuals with disabilities to express themselves through poetry. Today, the Program continues to offer art classes in drawing, painting and art jewelry/accessories to adults with disabilities living in our community, as well as the hospital setting. Through the use of adaptive tools artists realize their full potential in artistic expression

Adaptive Arts provide a special freedom of expression and creativity for people with disabilities. In some cases, this form of independence is the only means by which a person can express themselves. Through Adaptive Arts, individuals with physical and intellectual challenges are able to utilzes assistive equipment and therapies to overcome their challenges to freely create some truly beautiful creations

The best way we know to support our Artists' is to promote the sale of their works. This provides a unique source of income for people that face unique challenges entering the traditional workplace but more importantly, provides a sense of accomplishment and acceptance when someone purchases a piece.

The Adaptive Arts Program has held successful art shows and sales in the local community for years. We have expanded to Etsy in order to reach out to people across the country and give everyone an opportunity to support our artist at any time.

United Cerebral Palsy of Rhode Island is a non-profit that has been supporting adults and children with disabilities living in Rhode Island since 1954. We offer programs that focus on abilities and individual strengths promoting inclusion in the community.

Our award-winning Adaptive Arts Program provides a creative outlet for adults with a variety of disabilities both in classroom and hospital settings. Through the use of adaptive tools, artists realize their full potential in artistic expression. We offer art classes in drawing, painting and art jewelry/accessories and have been selling the art produced at art shows and sales for years. We hope to expand our venture to the Etsy community to increase revenue to our adaptive artists as well as awareness of the challenges they face.

100% of the profits of original art, jewelry and accessories will be paid directly to the artists in our program. A check is issued to each individual, a check that is received with great pride and excitement, no matter how small the amount.
