The mission of Barrier-Free's Studio is to support the development of life skills and social skills through an integrated-arts model with a focus on interpersonal interaction, authentic practice, and group collaboration.
The Studio, located in Historic Downtown Sykesville, is an expansion on our current programming that will allow us to offer Barrier-Free opportunities EVERY DAY.
The Life Skills & Social Studio will serve neurodiverse adults 18+ with no age cap, including those with intellectual/developmental disabilities and autism.
