Fine Arts Program

One of the fin­est ser­vices at Pathway is our visu­al arts pro­gram. Using “guided by di­rec­ted” tech­niques,  our in­dividu­als are able to create strik­ing works of art. This tech­nique is an art based therapy that stimulates im­mediate at­ten­tion, mem­o­ry, and be­havior im­prove­ments. The in­dividu­als ex­peri­ence a sense of ac­hieve­ment and sig­nifican­ce, qualit­ies that are often lack­ing in peo­ple with the uni­que chal­lenges of in­tel­lectu­al dis­abilit­ies.

We are grateful to have art instructor, Marlo Sell, who is able to pre­sent a variety of mediums to our pro­gram par­ticipants allowing them to ex­plore their creative talents. Marlo holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art.  She enjoys working with our program participants and togeth­er they have trans­for­med our Pathway Ser­vices area into an Art Gal­le­ry, dis­play­ing many won­der­ful as­sort­ments of ar­tistic ex­press­ions.

"The images that come to my mind when I think about my life's work as an artist are not images of work that I have created, but those of my students. The achievements that they have been able to obtain with my guidance, inspires me to continue to see what amazing things we will be able to dream up and create next" Marlo Sell

The creative works of our in­dividu­als reach beyond our own doors. Art­ists and their works have been dis­played at York First Friday events, York City Mayor's office, PAR office in Harrisburg, and in The Gal­le­ry at Com­mon Grounds at Li­v­ing Word Com­mun­ity Church.

  Indian Rock Acres - Respite and Retreats

From the very be­ginn­ing of Jes­sica & Friends Com­mun­ity the de­sire to offer free re­spite to our parents and their famil­ies has been a part of our vis­ion. This dream be­came a rea­l­ity in late 2013 when the Sul­livan fami­ly gracious­ly gif­ted their be­auti­ful co­unt­ry es­tate to us for this pur­pose.
