The heART of Friendship is an art program sponsored by Friendship Community located in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The vision of Friendship Community is to be a community which affirms the worth of all people.

The heART of Friendship empowers adults with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities to pursue the creation of folk and “outsider” art as a way of developing skills, achieving self expression, finding a meaningful role in society and moving toward economic independence.

We have added 5 new artists who are served by Friendship Community to the program.  Three new artists who are not part of Friendship are have also started classes since September.  An after school class was also started for individuals from the United Support Group in November of 2009.
