Our Story

ARTS AND REC,LLC started in a barn on the property of the owner. Julie saw such a need for a program that would be engaging and fun for individuals with special needs. Julie is an artist herself and wanted to share that experience. Art can give so much self esteem and pride to an individual. Anyone can be an artist with the right instruction. Julie is also a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Therapist. She believes that leisure time and leisure skills are so important to everyone's quality of life. Using her background and education she moved forward with ARTS AND REC,LLC. 

Due to COVID many adults do not have a program to go to or in any way have been social, or spent time with peers. The center is not only a great place to take a class, be engaged and learn something new, it is also a great place to meet new friends. 

We now have drums alive, photography and cooking classes. Along with painting and drawing, we have an animation drawing class and multimedia art class. Come see what we have to offer.
