Local Artists Team Up With Mesa Developmental Services For Art Project

Local artists choose paint colors and put the final touches on their creations Thursday as they finished the second class in a program that brings the art center and clients from Mesa Developmental Services together.

Organizers believe art is a therapeutic outlet for people with mental and physical disabilities, and say this kind of work can also bring out pride and a sense of accomplishment for those who participate.

You have a chance to check out the talent of some of these artists.
From now until the end of the month Barnes & Noble by Mesa Mall will have several of the pieces on display.
