ACE: Arts and Community Exploration

ACE: Arts and Community Exploration


SHALOM Denver’s ACE: Arts and Community Exploration program is a people-centered interactive day program for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It focuses on the whole person, community involvement, and integration, with stimulating activities tailored to each participant’s needs and unique personality. The richness of different cultures is celebrated through crafts, foods, literature, history, and art.

Healthy lifestyles and mindfulness are encouraged through nutrition, yoga, and exercise. Passionate creative expression is experienced through multiple mediums, such as paint, grains, beads, clay, paper mache, fabrics, textiles, ceramics, and more. Open expression of feelings is encouraged, resulting in the development of healthy relationships. Participants explore the community at cultural and art centers, parks, libraries, downtown adventures, and museums. They enjoy helping others by volunteering and donating time to give back to the community.
