"It gives me freedom to move the way I want," Mary Jane Sweet said.
Sweet or "M.J."as her friends call her, may be in a wheelchair - but her imagination has no limits.
"I love this class. I enjoy it more than anything, I've done before," she said.
That class - an art class on wheels, courtesy of the Lux Center For the Arts - "Art Van de Lux"
"With Lux Center - the art van is kind of our outreach to the community and we provide art classes for people that wouldn't be able to come to our art center," Instructor Aileen Wiles said.
"What we've seen is that the instructors give each resident a theme, gives them special instructions, but when you put all the art together you see something very different," Madonna Clinical Supervisor of Recreation Therapy, Doris Lewis said.
A difference, M.J. is proud of. The author, whose books focus on art without limits --- proudly shows off her work.
" I enjoy looking at them. Everyone wants the clouds and the sky. I've enjoyed expressing myself this way, " she said.
The project is an ongoing grant through the National Endowment for the Arts Fund.
It's six weeks long.
