The Arc of the Capital Area is proud to announce our partnership with Austin Community College! We have become a satellite location for Austin Community College providing evening and weekend courses for adults with and without Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. Here at The Arc of The Capital Area we are staffed by professional trained artist instructors able to teach and grow new to advanced artists. We believe that art is a unique way for those with I/DD to express themselves and are committed to providing a safe space for the creative process to take place. These fully inclusive art courses are offered year round.
