The community turned out for a reception to celebrate the artwork of students of Arts for Healing on Jan. 25 at the Bank of New Canaan's Elm Street branch. The exhibit will be on display through the end of March.

Arts for Healing is a nurturing community-based center that helps people with learning and developmental disabilities improve the quality of their lives through music and creative arts therapy.

As a nonprofit organization, they've been working with special needs children, adolescents and adults and their families in Fairfield and Westchester Counties for more than a decade.

By providing safe and enriching artistic experiences, our students emerge to increase communication, attention span, fine and gross motor skills, social skills, and language development. As they progress, their renewed awareness and self-confidence is carried with them into their family relationships, school settings and community.

As New Canaan's only hometown bank, The Bank of New Canaan is a locally managed commercial bank committed to providing the highest possible level of customer service and added value to the community. Located at 208 Elm Street and 156 Cherry Street, the bank offers a full range of banking and lending services.
