The Studio at BAC
The art program of BAC’s Adult Day Training (ADT) program is where adults with disabilities get to foster their creativity. Handcrafted clay and fused glass creations, bead work for jewelry and assembly of rubber door mats are all made by our artists with disabilities in The Studio. Those interested in purchasing Studio creations can do so weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the lobby of BAC’s Rockledge headquarters, as well as throughout the year at local art fairs. In addition, Holmes Regional Gift Shop
in Melbourne and Cocoa Beach Surf Company
in Cocoa Beach carry Studio items. Proceeds from art sales go directly back to the Studio.
Contact the Studio Director, Heidi Popp via email or phone at (321) 632-8610, ext. 273 for more information.
