  • On March 28th 2013, the arts community gathered at the Expo Arts Center in BIxby Knolls to celebrate exemplary individuals who have impacted the arts community of Long Beach in amazing ways. Congratulations to Helen Dolas, Distinguished Arts Leader, Arts Council for Long Beach 2013/State of the Arts 2013

Welcome to Arts and Services for Disabled

  • Please help!

    On March 13 and 14, burglars broke in at our ART Center in Long Beach. The thieves first broke the glass window wall and stole several iPads and MacBooks and $300 in cash. The next night they returned, shattered the glass front door, and stole our 46” television, as well as some additional tech equipment.

    We are very fortunate that no one was present during the break ins and that none of our staff or students were injured or endangered.

    The cost of repairing damages (twice) and replacing our stolen technology and devices is approximately $10,000. Because we were forced to cancel classes on Saturday and Monday, there will be an additional loss of approximately $2,000 in lost enrollment funding.

    Cost to replace one iPad = $500
    Cost to replace our 46” TV = $600
    Cost to replace one MacBook laptop = $1,000

    We are gratefully accepting contributions to assist us in replacing our lost equipment and revenue. We do have insurance, but it will not cover the entire cost, nor replace our lost enrollment funding.
