Stephen and Leslie Secrist were inspired to create “Dylan’s Down with the Arts” because of their oldest son, Dylan.

Dylan has always loved to sing, dance, act, and take pictures but Stephen and Leslie were finding less and less opportunities for him to do the things he loves as he grew older. They wanted to provide more options for kids and adults with special needs to make these folks’ lives more fulfilling!

Whether an individual is gifted in the area of the arts or just enjoys being creative, Stephen and Leslie want to provide through DDWA a fun, loving, and safe environment for them to explore the arts.
