SNAP is a place where everyone is accepted, and joyful. When I see the happy faces of the members when they sing, I feel pure joy and I forget all my stress. SNAP provides an amazing opportunity for me to meet with all types of different people, and gain a new perspective on life. -SNAP Parent

Scenes from our Ceramics Class. Special thanks to the Community Endowment of Lexington for their grant to support this new program and to LexArts, the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society, for use of their kiln and classroom:
For me, as a volunteer in the art class, I get inspiration from the artists. They express themselves so freely. Each person has a recognizable style all his own. Seeing them work has given me a deeper understanding of the real meaning of art. -SNAP Volunteer
