Bridgeway, a non-profit mental health services agency located in Elizabeth, assists Central and Northern New Jersey adults experiencing mental illness by providing them with training and skills necessary to live more independently and successfully in the community. The agency’s Creative Arts Unit provides opportunities for people to experience various forms of artistic expression.
The Fine Art Instruction Program allows novice artists to explore their creative abilities and more advanced artists to increase their skills by offering a series of weekly instruction sessions. Bridgeway’s staff supports and encourages individuals whose artistic inclinations lead them to pursue creative endeavors. Artist-instructors teach drawing and painting and help students gain an understanding of the importance and benefits of becoming involved in the arts.
