Arts in Motion offers art expression to those with special needs. Program kicks off Sunday. 


LUDINGTON — Arts in Motion – Lakeshore will debut on Sunday, March 26 at Makers Market of Ludington, located downtown, from 1 to 3 p.m. The all-inclusive arts group specializes in art expression for individuals with special needs. The free program will include dancing, drumming, and painting. The program will be held again on April 23.

Arts in Motion’s mission of “Enriching the community and lives of individuals with disabilities through expressive arts,” encompasses all ages and abilities, according to Shelby Soberalski, who is organizing the event locally. Prospective students and their families are welcome to join to learn more about the program and how it is run, as well as, to give input about what they would like to gain from our organization. Potential teachers who are interested in sharing their skills and enriching lives are being sought.

Arts in Motion Studio specializes in adaptive instruction in the creative arts for the physically, emotionally or mentally challenged. Creative arts are an important means of self-expression, and should be accessible to all individuals, regardless of any physical or mental limitation. Its adaptive instruction focuses on the potential for personal expression, not on the rules of technique. By using a variety of styles, music, and props, students are able to outwardly express the beauty within.

“With appropriate accommodations, the creative arts can provide individuals with special needs an emotional outlet, increased confidence and self-esteem, a sense of achievement, freedom of expression, expanded social awareness and communication, and an opportunity for involvement,” Soberalski said. “Arts in Motion welcomes everyone.”
