Outside the Lines Studio is an arts-based alternative day program, collectively run by artists, for individuals with developmental and physical disabilities. Its mission is to provide a creative, supportive community, where each individual can explore their own unique potential in a way that best suits their interests, talents, and learning styles. In addition to expressive therapy, job-training, and community integration, OTL provides opportunities for our individuals to gain recognition and income as artists; 60% of proceeds from art sales go directly to the individual artist.
