FLYING COLORS:

The "Flying Colors Program" at SMASE is based on Art Realization Technologies (A.R.T.), which is a program created in 1995 by artist Tim Lefens that helps people with developmental disabilities or physical limitations express themselves artistically.  The program seeks to eliminate obstacles to express, whether it's physical, mental or societal.  Works of art are made by the individual through their own choice of shapes and colors even though they can only communicate by movement of finger or turn of their head.  In respnse to each discrete choice and utilizing tools known as "trackers" - they put paint on the canvas, locating the placement of each stroke, splatter or dot by following a laser light attached to a headband worn, and controlled, by each artist.  Here at SMASE the clients are given the opportunity of expression through art and utilizing ART to overcome physical barriers.
