Music has been scientifically proven to have a powerful effect on the brain. Recent research shows that music can help in many aspects of the brain, including pain reduction, stress relief, memory, and brain injuries. We offer educational music theory programs as well as music appreciation and performance opportunities.

"Act Up"

Besides being incredibly fun, theater helps people develop many of the skills necessary for success in today’s world. To name a few:
Self-Confidence:  Throughout the rehearsal and performance process, performers discover how to take creative and emotional risks and learn to trust  their abilities.
Literacy: Students increase reading and writing skills at their own pace by immersing themselves in  the story, reading and re-reading their scripts, memorizing their lines, and taking notes at rehearsal.
Communication:  During rehearsals, students learn how to articulate their thoughts and  questions and carefully listen to direction in order to improve their  performances. 

"Creative Minds"

Sometimes words get stuck. Some of us, especially children, are unable to articulate their pain with words. Using art as expression has many health benefits.  

Creating art relieves stress, encourages creative thinking,  increases brain plasticity, and imparts other mental health benefits, 

and, anyone can do art. 

"Garden Goodness"

Planting and cultivating a garden is a very healing process. It is scientifically proven that gardening is especially successful for veterans, and individuals suffering from PTSD, depression and other mental issues. 

As our garden grows, participants get to eat what they grow which has powerful physical health benefits. Our garden goodness is also used in our culinary program.
