CENTER FOR THE ARTS
Little City’s Center for the Arts (CFA) provides children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities the opportunity to expand their unique and creative talents, promoting a sense of accomplishment and empowerment through the arts. Through our program, the students are able to create and sell work.
ABOUT CENTER FOR THE ARTS
The Center for the Arts at Little City is the result of an evolutionary process that began with the belief that people with developmental disabilities could be taught skills that would lead to full opportunities in the arts.
Each day, professional artists acting as facilitators encourage artists to expand their reach and skills, resulting in art that transcends the disability of the artists who created it.
SHARE MY KINGDOM
“Share My Kingdom” is a documentary that delves into the lives and art of three artists with developmental disabilities who emerged from the art studio of Little City. This documentary provides a view into the compelling life histories and the artistic creations of Harold Jeffries, Wayne Mazurek and Luke Tauber. While the three men in the documentary seemingly have the odds stacked against them, they are able to turn their ideas into reality. With no formal art education or training, each of them transforms their vision into artistic works of expression.
This program is partially funded through a grant from the Illinois Arts Council.
