Art and Social Inclusion group at the Brookfield Zoo
Community Support Services, Inc., Art360 brings art, learning, creativity and social inclusion full circle. This innovative new program will engage young adults in hands on, therapeutic, and social activities through the creative arts and the social atmosphere of the Chicago Zoological Society’s Brookfield Zoo. Individuals will be able to observe various animals in their habitats, while enhancing social skills and discovering new forms of self-expression through art techniques. This is a 9-week community based art program, followed by an art exhibition on the 10th week in which the individuals showcase their works of art. Art360 is geared toward teens and young adults between the ages of 15 - 25 with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (I/DD).
