I am so excited to share my combination of Art & Community Service in Florida.   If you are new to my blog I need to bring you up-to-date on my project:  Circle of Friends & Stars, an Art Program serving adults with Autism, Down Syndrome & others with Intellectual, Learning & Developmental Disabilities.  An ART / DANCE / MUSIC / ARTS & CRAFTS / THEATER “SPECIAL” ACTIVITY CLUB.  We meet every Saturday at the Schacknow Museum of Fine Arts in Plantation, Florida at 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m.  If you have been following over the years, you already know what’s going on.  What I’d like to share is the Artwork being created during our CREATIVE EXPRESSIONS SEASON at the Circle of Friends & Stars.

Feather Butterfly

“Butterfly in Feathers”

June 1st to August 31 of each year the Club concentrates on art projects for exhibit purposes.  During the Creative Expressions Season the Club produces the most interestingly creative projects that I am especially proud of and must share with my readers.  The feature project of this season will be our Butterflies in Feathers.  We will be present 4 butterflies; 2 in feathers and 2 in glitter.  Shown here is Debra Miller who has been working for 5 weeks in order to be ready for our 1st Art Exhibit on August 10, 2013 at the BB&T CENTER in Sunrise, Florida.

We invite you to share our program with people you know that are seeking creative activity for their adult special needs children in the South Florida basin.  Call us (305) 469-6009 for more details and get directions to our Clubhouse.   I am working 35 hours per week on this project and invite volunteers to come out and serve our special needs opportunities.
