What is ART NITE?
Art Nite is a program for adults, who are eligible for Defiance County Board of Developmental Disabilities services, that meet bimonthly with local artist, Jen Boyd. Through artistic encouragement, participants demonstrate self-expression, self-esteem, and improved social skills.
Art Night was created the summer of 2014 by Defiance College student intern, Nick Siewert. Nick co-wrote a grant and DCBDD was awarded funds from the Diehl Family Foundation to put the program in drive!
Below are photos of the finished projects from the very first Art Nite. This work of art hangs in the conference room at the County Board office. Students who attend Good Samaritan School, created pictures in the Spring and their work is displayed throughout the building.
