DesiHeart greatly admires the work College of Adaptive Arts has done towards there mission of simulating a full liberal arts education where the adult students can flourish, thrive, and push the boundaries of their full potential. DesiHeart was honored to support their mission by conducting a paper costume workshop for the CAA School of Theatre.
