FARR WORKS is an art studio and woodshop developed to provide students at Farr Academy with an opportunity to build self-confidence and self-esteem, develop job-related skills, and enhance their creative skills through a work experience.

This project was developed by Barbara Greenspan, an art therapist who formerly worked at Farr Academy, and became a reality in the summer of 1992 when four students were hired to work in the studio. Later, woodshop was added to the program and over the decades dozens of students have successfully engaged in Farr Works to create slab-built clay pottery, hand painted clay trivets, wooden cutting boards and toys, and even furniture and decorative knick-knacks.

Farr Academy provides challenging and troubled adolescents with a therapeutic education that fosters the building of academic, personal and interpersonal skills, thereby enabling them to graduate from high school; achieve success in their chosen careers; remain connected to their families; and become positive members of the larger community.
