Arc participants were in the spotlight creating works of art, practicing yoga, and exploring interactive games as CBS News featured Studio Arc in a segment on the local news on Friday, December 2.

Reporter John Dias spent a day documenting the many innovative programs offered at Studio Arc and interviewing our artisans, as well as Studio Arc director Evelyn Gallik and The Arc of Essex County CEO Linda Lucas. John and his team captured a variety of different activities and helped tell the story of The Arc—and, specifically, Studio Arc—to the wider world.

Jamie Diguglielmo was one of the artisans featured, and shared that she feels creative whenever she’s at Studio Arc. “I am happy when I am here, I like the things I do,” she said.
