The Blossoms Art Exhibition showcases the talents of students, grades K-12, in YCS special education schools and Sawtelle Autism Learning Center in northern New Jersey. Students at four YCS special education schools and the Sawtelle Learning Center - for students on the autism spectrum - will showcase their talents in an array of mixed mediums including water color paintings, masks, pastel collages, fabric painting, clay figures, poetry, video performances and more. 

Blossoms has earned the reputation for touching the hearts of viewers and proving how special all these students really are. Each piece of art on display today reflects a student’s individual journey towards establishing a joyful, fulfilling life. As you walk through this exhibit, we hope you will be a part of this journey!

There will also be live musical performances at the awards presentation.  This event is free; refreshments will be served.  For more information, call YCS at 201-678-1312 or online at ycs.org.
