WELCOME TO DONNA LEXA ART CENTERS

Our Mission
To promote creativity, dignity and community for people with disabilities and special needs through art.

Our Vision
A gathering place to learn, explore and experience the creative process – for adults of all abilities and special needs.

Core Values
At Donna Lexa Community Art Centers, we promote and celebrate the following core values:
Creativity, Curiosity, Friendship, Respect, Growth and Success

The Donna Lexa Art Centers currently serve adults and teens with cognitive and physical disabilities, as well as individuals with mental health concerns. In addition, we provide art classes for senior citizens dealing with the challenges of aging.

Involvement in our art programming strengthens self-esteem, fosters independence, and provides new ways to express feelings. Art develops creative and critical thinking, which not only teaches our student artists new skills, but also provides a sense of well-being and enjoyment.

WEATHER CLOSINGS

In the case of severe weather, we will generally follow the public schools in cancelling classes during the school year, and our instructors will make a decision based on student safety during the summer. We will attempt to notify all students of closings.

We will always post our closings on Today’s TMJ4,  under the business closings for the county in which the class takes place. We will also post it here on our website, and we will have a message on our phone, so you can call 262-521-2292 to confirm a closing at any of our locations.
