About the Arts Program

A dream to provide quality art instruction to artists with disabilities came into reality when our first arts center opened its doors in of 1997.

The Living Resources Arts Program provides a stimulating and imaginative setting, with classes taking place throughout the week. We provide instruction out of three sites:

  • 6A Cuyler Avenue, Albany
  • 2176 Guilderland Ave, Schenectady
  • 11 Round Lake Rd, Ballston Lake

In 2017 we opened Living Resources 70 Beekman Street Gallery in Saratoga. In addition to exhibiting the work of Living Resources students and community artists, the gallery operates as an inclusive community workspace where artists of all abilities can learn together.

Arts explored through the Arts Program include:

Spotlighting our students artwork throughout the community

The Arts Program has been highly recognized not only in the Capital District, but nationally as well. The students continue to win awards at numerous art shows including the State Wide Juried Art Show Voice!, The Autism Society Gala, The NYSACRA Conference, Sunny Viewpoint Gallery, and BUILT.

One of the greatest advantages for students enrolled in our art center is our vast connections throughout the local art community. Our students' artwork has been displayed in local businesses and galleries such as The Albany County Convention and Visitor Center, State office buildings, Thatcher Park Nature Center, The Opalka Gallery at Saint Rose, Fulton Street Gallery in Troy, Case Gallery at Skidmore College, Saratoga Arts Council Building, Hilton Garden Inn at Troy, and many more.

Our students' art can also be seen in our Saratoga location, Living Resources 70 Beekman Street Gallery and the Miller Sanders Gallery located in the Living Resources Coroporate Headquarters.

Timothy Primeau is a very enthusiastic and versatile young artist, who has been attending the Living Resources Arts Program since Fall of 2016 at our Schenectady Studio. He has explored painting landscapes, self-portraits, animals, and sewing theatrical costumes. He really enjoys learning about new media and new techniques. Tim works at Puzzles Bakery & Cafe in Schenectady, and enjoys community theater.
