Programs at Access Gallery
Access Gallery serves people with disabilities who are interested in creative, educational, social, and economic opportunities through the visual arts. We primarily serve individuals who are eligible for Program Approved Services Agency (PASA) based services. For those who are not PASA eligible, admission is determined on a case-by-case basis.
Individuals that are interested in participating in our various community art based programs can begin the process by contacting their case worker who then can contact our Programs Coordinator at 303-777-0797 or email at to set up an initial tour of the Gallery.
After the tour, if you are interested in participating in one of our programs, we ask that you fill out an application and attend an interview. Upon acceptance, the first three months of enrollment are a trial period. This gives an opportunity to fully integrate into the programs and determine if one is a good fit. Upon a positive completion of the trial period, we will meet to talk about establishing your personal goals, as they relate to your work at Access Gallery. `
