ArtSparks was established in 1995, as part of Harc’s Life Enrichment Program, a day program for senior citizens with intellectual disability.
ArtSparks provides a quiet, focused time for our artists to create original watercolor and oil stick paintings under the direction of a practicing artist.
In making and showing their art, our artists have gained a wonderful sense of community involvement with their exhibits. They also have tremendous satisfaction and pride in seeing their work respected and valued as it is shown in various venues in Greater Hartford. The artists also receive a commission on the sale of their original paintings.
