The Enrichment Center (EC) provides a forum for exploration, practice, and study, in the visual and performing arts for adult artists with developmental disabilities.
The EC artists are engaged in arts practice 3 hours per day, 5 days per week, 12 months per year… approximately 235 days per year… or about 700 hours per year.
The EC is committed to providing the artists with a challenging, high quality arts program, offering options for studio practice, workshops, and group projects. Artists have the opportunity to plan their own course of study and program experience, signing up for sets of 8-10 weeks. In this way, the artists can explore as many, or as few, different experiences over the year, as they choose.
The EC is a program of the Merced County Arts Council, licensed by the State of California, Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division. The EC is a vendor for the Central Valley Regional Center.
