The workshop provides techniques and strategies that are inclusive for social/emotional, artistic and academic implementation. There will be segments on accommodation/modification of techniques to adapt content for children and youth with disabilities. Featured Guests include Dwayne Szot (Arts for All) and Jeff Deen (Drumming for Wellness).
“Arts for All” art tools, created by acclaimed artist and inventor Dwayne Szot, are one-of-a-kind products that offer individuals of all abilities an opportunity for creative expression through arts and mobility. The Zot Artz – Arts for All tools are designed so participants with limited movement or lack of fine motor skills can be successful in using what mobility they have to create, paint, draw, print and more. Individuals of all abilities can roll our paint and draw with chalk – all while working on mobility skills and coordination through creative expression.

Drumming for Wellness, designed by Jeff Deen, includes a “DRUMVERSATION,” a rhythmic conversation activity. Participants are led through a series of rhythmic exercises and guided visualizations that explore learning styles.
