The Art of Working
The Art of Working focuses on cultivating soft skills vital to obtaining and maintaining employment while exploring the fundamentals of visual art, theater, poetry, music, and dance. Through the artistic practice we focus on workplace interactions and situations; following directions, asking for help, self-advocating, job interviews, customer service, appropriate topics of conversation, being a part of a team, identifying personal strengths and weaknesses, and receiving feedback/taking responsibility.
