Within this unique environment Fairfield DD offers a wide array of services to the public. The community has enjoyed the paint-your-own pottery and art studio for over a decade embraces it as the hub of the local arts community.
Classes are available regularly for artists of all ages and abilities. Square 7 fulfills the niche of a local coffee house by offering custom-roasted coffee and specialty drinks, smoothies, and gourmet deli fare, as well as chocolates and baked goods.
Both enterprises also serve as employment and internship sites for adults with developmental disabilities. Participants in the internships are taught employability skills in the areas of customer service, retail, maintenance, food-service and accountability. Most interns begin their term with a job developer but the ultimate goal is to work independently. Some interns have even gone on to employment with Art & Clay or other employers in the community.
