At the Cooper Center for Creative Arts, we believe that all people deserve the opportunity for creative self-expression without limits and without boundaries, and we challenge the perceptions people hold of artists with disabilities. By working alongside trained, professional artists, students have the opportunity to develop technical skills in the arts while exploring their personal creativity. Whether it is studying Monet, reading Shakespeare or exploring modern dance, the Cooper Center is changing art, changing minds, and changing lives!

Art

Believing that art is a vital and persistent aspect of everyday life, instructors in the varied visual arts classes at the Cooper Center promote self-expression, independence, critical thinking, and decision making skills as important facets of studying the visual arts.

Dance

The study of dance allows students to build self-confidence and concentration skills while also providing an opportunity to improve strength, stamina, and balance.

Theatre

Learning to work with others cooperatively is at the heart of any theatre program. Students who attend classes in theatre also inherently learn problem solving, critical thinking, and decision making skills. The classes provide a healthy forum of verbal and nonverbal expression for students.

Music

Research suggests that the study of music can improve cognitive function, improve how the brain processes spoken and written language, and provide the brain with the skill to better organize and conduct numerous activities at once.
