United Cerebral Palsy of MetroBoston recently received a grant from the Watertown Community Foundation in order to support its Creative Arts Program. Through the Creative Arts Program, UCP provides opportunities for individuals with disabilities to participate in and explore a variety of classes and programs while providing an accessible space, assistive technology and adapted equipment as needed. This grant will support the organization in expanding classes to children with disabilities and increase collaborations with seniors and local artist in the Watertown community.
Starting in November, there will be two classes offered. Mixed Media is taught by a Recreational Aide who has a background in fine arts. The class will allow participants to explore a variety of media including screen printing, canvas, paint, and crafts with themes related to the changing seasons and upcoming holidays. The Cooking Class will be taught by a Therapy Aide and will focus on cooking styles and techniques and will include preparing a variety of dishes from breakfast foods to desserts. Classes meet in Watertown at UCP’s Day Habilitation Program from 4:45 – 6:15 PM. The cost for each of these classes is $150 for 10 weeks for activities. For more information or to register, contact Kathy at 617-924-2771.
