What is A.R.T.?

The nonprofit A.R.T. Artistic Realization Technologies, based in Princeton NJ, has created technologies, studio programming, and training that empowers those who lack the articulate use of their hands to gain perfect individual control of the art-making process.

A.R.T. received its 501C3 status in 1995. There are 27 studio programs operating in the U.S.

Our goal is to share the liberating power of A.R.T. with all those who could benefit. We do this by sharing our approach with disabilities organizations, rehabilitation hospitals, public and private schools, universities, and community-based organizations.

Our funders include:

  • The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
  • The Kessler Foundation
  • The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation
  • The National Endowment for the Arts
  • Princeton University

“A.R.T. will open doors in our program that have previously been closed to the individuals we serve. It provides the foundation for independence and complete control for individuals who have been dependent on others in all aspects of their lives. A.R.T. is the future of where our program is going. It is independence, control, expression, and freedom for individuals.”
