Holistic Education and Art Recreation Therapy (HEART) is a healthy and creative activity program for adults with special needs. They are welcoming guests to their Happy Days heART Show on Thursday July 7, from 6pm-7pm hosted at St. Barnabas Lutheran Church located at 45 Moultrie St., Downtown Charleston. Each 6-week session at HEART has a different theme where local artists and volunteers dedicate their time and share their talents to help HEART participants produce multi-media heART Shows.
HEART’s Happy Days heART Show is a throwback to the beloved TV series set in the 50s. The Fonz will be making several appearances to ensure an evening of fun and laughter while the V-Tones will set the mood as live musical accompaniment throughout the show. HeARTist’s funky artwork will also be on display in the gallery. It will be a creative experience of music, dance, art, and community.
HEART’s Handmade will have a pop-up shop at the event. HEART's Handmade is a micro-business HEART launched in April 2016 that employs HEART participants (aka; Heartists) making and selling organic vegetarian dog treats and dog bow ties. We sell these treats, as well as arts and crafts made at HEART, at farmers markets and pop-up shops around the lowcountry. This creates a revenue stream for HEART and employment for the Heartists.
