The Cooper Center for Creative Arts

Since the inception of the Cooper Center for Creative Arts, our purpose has been to nurture and cultivate artists. Our focus is to provide the venue, education, and supplies that are necessary for an artist...any artist...to create masterpieces. The artists represented by the Cooper Center happen to have disabilities, but our goal is to transcend disability and have them be regarded and accepted as artists...period. We envision a community in which there is no segregation, but rather a culture of diversity and appreciation for all artists.

Adults

The Equestrian Center at Ark Regional Services houses a number of innovative supports that deliver enormous benefits to people with intellectual and physical disabilities. Services available at the Equestrian Center include hippotherapy, recreational riding, and husbandry classes.

In order to provide these supports, Ark employs qualified horse professionals who train and care for up to 12 horses, and maintains both indoor and outdoor arenas. There are a multitude of tasks that need to be completed in order to maintain the Equestrian Center facility and care for the horses. These are difficult jobs that require a tremendous commitment and a lot of hard work. People with intellectual disabilities work alongside horse professionals in order to complete these tasks. Individuals learn valuable skills,and build self-esteem while performing the essential functions required to run the Equestrian Center.
