Creativity abounds. Color, texture, brush strokes, and medium are all considerations the Open Arms Care artists use to create beautiful, original works of art.

Over a decade ago, artist Tim Lefens questioned, “How could a person who was unable to walk, talk, or use their hands, gain full control of the creative process? How could they gain a pathway to uncompromised self-expression?” The response was A.R.T.; Art Realization Technologies. Open Arms Care was the first to bring this ground breaking opportunity to Tennessee. Through the OAC Flying Brushes Program, our clients utilize these techniques, and numerous other innovative options, to create the artwork you see today.

The result of the Inspirations of Life Art Program has been the emergence of self-expression previously unseen. Persons who were previously not afforded the ability to truly express themselves artistically, because of their developmental disabilities or physical limitations, are now given the tools to create something completely theirs; without the influence of another person’s opinion or perspective. The finished work is entirely the product of the artist and is stunningly beautiful. Each piece takes on a personality of its own, and over time a true artistic styles emerge.
