Brush Art GalleryThis program provides on-site art classes for mentally challenged adults. Working with a facility's volunteers and staff, experienced teachers like Lolita Demers, one of the Brush’s resident artists and a long-time art teacher in the Lowell Public Schools, will design and deliver workshops specially geared for mentally challenged adults. The one and a half hour weekend workshops include about 15 participants who create artwork in a variety of media. These classes include glass-painting, collage, birdhouse making, large, group-created murals, and many other projects. They are both fun and challenging for the students.

We are proud to provide art classes at the Brush Art Gallery & Studios to organizations like TILL -- Toward Independent Living and Learning (www.tillinc.org).
