ARTFORMS is officially in its new space at the Art Annex, 8C Canal Court in Avon, right across from the FVAC main campus. Two groups have already enjoyed the “Puzzle Piece” experience and created beautiful pieces to hang in their gathering places. Since the ARTFORMS space is fully accessible, we are excited to host many groups looking for fun, team building and therapeutic art experiences.

ARTFORMS was conceived in 2016 as a program to provide art opportunities for those living with MS. Initially, it was designed to make all forms of art available to people of all abilities by offering a series of classes created specifically for the MS community. These classes were reported to help participants escape daily challenges, combat depression, and exercise fine motor skills. Group classes also provided a place to connect with others in an informal social setting and celebrate the joy of creation. “Art for MS” soon evolved into a program that benefited a broader population, prompting the name change to ARTFORMS.
