About Visibility Arts
The Visibility Arts program began over 14 years ago out of a desire to provide opportunities for self-expression, creativity and achievement for adults with developmental disabilities. Visibility Arts is a comprehensive visual arts program that offers a combination of group learning experiences and hands-on studio time. Classes take place in a 7,000 square foot space in Mt. Prospect that includes fully equipped studio facilities and a spacious gallery for exhibitions. In addition, Visibility Arts programming is also offered at Search's Chicago and Waukegan locations.

Lessons cover all aspects of artistic expression including color theory, art history, drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture. Recent additions to the growing curriculum include Collaborative Art, Collaborative Sculpture and Portraits. Individuals in the program meet and learn from other local artists. Visibility Artists also enjoy regular opportunities to show and sell their work in a variety of galleries and public venues.
