What is Outsider Art?
Outsider Art is artwork by adults who create out of their own personal vision and inner drive and are not professionally trained. They work 'outside' the professional art and scholastic world. Rainbow Thursdays Artists program consists of about 40 adults with disabilities who meet with us every week at the Windmill Center in Bayonne for a two-hour art making session. We provide them with art materials and source materials, such as art books and postcards and photo books, and we guide them in developing their own artistic vision. Your support allows this work to continue.
