Phase Change has partnered with Envision Art, a budding organization that teaches art to children and adults with special needs, to provide an online portal to showcase student work.

Envision Art is run by Phase Change owner Ian Banks’ wife, Sabrina. She has a deep heart for children and adults with special needs.

Envision Art seeks to empower children and adults with disabilities through art, providing a creative opportunities which many students might not otherwise have experienced.

Envision Art is a program that provides adaptive art programming for children and adults with special needs. It does not matter the level of ability, all people are capable of creativity. It is Envision Art’s mission to empower creativity in children and adults with special needs.

Envision Art was created in 2010 by Artist Sabrina Banks. Sabrina began working with children with special needs in 2004 as a teenager volunteering on a special needs soccer team in La Mirada, California. Through relationships with the soccer players and their parents Sabrina began to provide respite care. Art was an interesting and fun activity that she used with those that she cared for.

When it came time for Sabrina’s senior art show at Biola University, she decided to make a collaborative art show with a child that she had been working with. The process of creating the art, as well as the event of the art opening was something that Sabrina found enjoyable not only for her, but also for the child and his parents. She decided that she wanted to use this means to help other children and adults with special needs to grow in their art experience and education. It was in the weeks following the art show that Sabrina decided to create Envision Art.
