Art@Arc is the creative arts program within The Arc-Solano. Since 1995, Art@Arc has provided consumers with a safe, supportive, non-judgmental atmosphere in which they can explore their creative voices. The freedom to create and to make individual choices are the cornerstones of this program, which provides consumers with the opportunity to gain recognition and increase self-esteem.  The program curriculum currently includes painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, textiles, mosaic, and ceramics. Consumers exhibit their art in a variety of venues. Our Community Gallery provides a wonderful showcase with exhibitions planned throughout the year. Exhibits in public galleries, cafés, bookstores, etc., provide a valuable outreach to the community at large.
 
Art@Arc will be exhibiting at Umpqua Bank in February
