The Natick Community-Senior Center is displaying art completed by students who attend Realizing Children’s Strengths (RCS) Learning Center in Natick. The exclusive art show will be exhibited from now until January 15.
Each piece of art includes an individual profile of a RCS Learning Center student, in the “Let’s Get to Work” vocational program, “who I am, what I like, what interests me.” Giving visitors to the Natick Community-Senor Center a peek into the lives of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) who attend RCS Learning Center, a school for students with ASD and other developmental disabilities. For many years the Natick Community-Senior Center has featured local artists, but this is the first time working with such a unique group, or any non-profit.
The Community-Senior Center and RCS Learning Center have a working relationship through the school’s vocational program. Older students in the RCS Learning Center program volunteer at the center and have assisted with Meals on Wheels. Vocational Director Jacqueline Adams, M.S., BCBA, LABA, said this is a wonderful opportunity for the students and RCS Learning Center to show their work in an art gallery-like setting, to share their stories with the public, for the public to learn about RCS, and to build awareness about its program.
The Natick Community-Senior Center is open M-Wed, 8:30 am-5 pm; Thu 8:30 am-7 pm and Fri 8:30 am-2:30 pm
