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.
Meet the Artists
The Infused Arts Ministry at Living Word Community Church recently exhibited artwork created by our Pathway artists. This wonderful brochure will give you an up close and personal view of our artists and some of their works.
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.
