 Including School-Age Children with Disabilities

in Arts Education: Teaching Artists Perspective

Thursday, September 12th – 4:00 to 5:30 pm

 Arts Access is pleased to present a webinar on ways that teaching artists have created an inclusive arts education experience for school-age children with disabilities.

 North Carolina teaching artists Cindy Biles (ceramic artist), Jeannette Brossart (mosaic artist), Leah Palmer (theater artist), and Marlon Torres (dance artist), will share their experiences conducting residencies they designed after attending the March 9th day-long Arts for All workshop. The presenters will discuss all aspects of the residencies – from planning to implementation to evaluation – and share lessons learned and resources, including lesson plans. Webinar participants are encouraged to send in their questions ahead of time to be addressed during the question and answer session.
