About Us

Let Us Introduce Ourselves

About-UsThe Donna Lexa Art Centers has been enriching the lives of individuals with special needs since 1985. Donna Lexa was an art therapist whose dream was to provide an environment of creative expression for specialized populations. “Artwork is an extension of the person.  If the artwork is accepted, the artist is accepted.  That stimulates independence, self-confidence, and motivation,” explained Donna.

We provide visual art instruction for adults and teens with special needs, as well as for older adults of all abilities. We have art studios in Waukesha, West Milwaukee, and West Bend, and we provide outreach classes on-site at locations where individuals with special needs live and receive other services.
