The Community Access Program (CAP) is a free program that supports organizations working with under-resourced groups and people with disabilities to explore their own creativity.  
Visits include guided tours, hands-on art workshops, and discussions based on participants’ needs and interests. Groups build greater connection to art and to each other through meaningful artmaking projects, and participants increase levels of self-expression.  

CAP welcomes people of all ages and abilities through human services agencies and other local community groups. 

CAP Schedule:  
Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays
10 am–noon
Each participating group can sign up for one 6-week session 
CAP program sessions run from September through June.
