Individuals and artists often take for granted their ability to hold and move a paint brush, position a canvas, or even view their creations. The opportunity for individuals with physical and mobility impairments to express themselves through visual art can be easily enhanced and possible by creating adaptive art-making materials. This workshop will provide attendees with exposure to different ways of adjusting art-making tools so participants of all ages and abilities can be included in the creative process. The workshop will include specific examples of tools developed by the presenters, a demonstration of how certain tools can be adjusted, and a supportive environment for participants to ask questions and discuss specific challenges they have faced as arts instructors.
Workshop size is limited and registration is required-Deadline Monday, October 29. To register send the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 614.241.5325.
