This course is designed for children ages 8-15 with physical disabilities, their siblings and friends. This weekly drop-off course provides opportunities to create with skills gained in Fine Arts and Media Lab. Students are given the space to be independent from their parents, while activities are adapted to accommodate the specific abilities of each child. Students will explore the practice of combining various distinct visual art media, such as paper, paint, textiles and sculpture, with new technology in our media lab such as animation, sound art and photography The class will also discover and discuss the work and techniques of notable mixed media artists. Students host exhibitions and visit other NYC cultural spaces on field trips.
