Yellow Key Arts supports artists with developmental and intellectual delays.  Teaching artists work side by side with participants to design, create, and market projects while providing quality visual and performing art education.

Our participants don't just sit down with crayons and paper.  We want to know your likes, dislikes, gifts, challenges, and goals you want to accomplish.  These may include building social skills, working on a team, or growing your talent and skills as an artist.

Our Mission is to foster life-long learning through the creative arts for people with developmental delays and emotional disturbances, providing community-based programs and transferrable job skills training by artists in an environment of warmth and mutual respect.
Our vision is to be a valuable and integral part of our community where people with different abilities are treated with respect and acceptance.
Our values:
Constructing educational opportunities for creativity and self expression in the visual and performing arts.
Promoting local artists with developmental delays and emotional/behavioral issues.
Contributing to our community.
Creating an environment of warmth and respect.
We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and donations are tax deductable.  

Your financial support provides opportunities for people to experience the arts.
