Art From The Heart” Creations is a program participant-based business launched by The Douglas Center. This program provides program participants with “hands-on” experience in the creation, production and selling of their own products. This venture offers participants living with developmental, intellectual and physical disabilities the opportunity for the development and training of marketable skills needed for their business while producing products for sale. The product lines include decorative accessories, jewelry and greeting cards. Each beautiful art piece is created from the heart by a Program Participant of The Douglas Center. “Art From The Heart” Creations enables our participants to earn income from the sale of their artwork, attain a sense of accomplishment, self-esteem and assistance in achieving greater independence in life. PLEASE NOTE: A portion of the proceeds of these art creations goes directly to the program participant that created it.
