Art class for disabled big hit in Wilmington

WILMINGTON -- An art class designed especially for adults with disabilities is becoming a big hit in Wilmington. Art From the Heart started last year when a volunteer realized there were no group classes offered for disabled adults. She organized a small group for an art session. When more people than expected showed up, she decided to start a formal class. Caregivers say the class is beneficial. Caregiver Shaquala Bell said, "They can show their creativity and express how they feel through art." Caregiver Kim Morris said, "We can get out into the community and not be stuck at work and in the house all the time."
$1 per participant Tuesdays and Thursdays 10 a.m. - 11 a.m. Martin Luther King Community Center 401 S. 8th Street, Wilmington pre-registration information: 910-341-0053

In light of all the negative

In light of all the negative media thrown at us each day this was a very heartwarming story. Great job!

Way to go!

Way to go Art from the Heart! If only everyone else was as compassionate about the disabled as y'all are!

they haven't been forgotten

well at least we know there are still good samaritans around

Good for them!

It's great to see the disabled haven't been forgotten! They are people too and just like you and I they would like to do more than just work all day and go home to cook their meals (yes they cook). Hats off to the workers who do this because they care for the disabled, they definitely aren't in it for the money!
