Arts Access, Inc. presents a one-day workshop for teaching artists, arts educators, and general education classroom teachers led by Jaehn Clare on strategies for including children of all abilities in arts education activities. 

This program is provided under a contract with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

The Office of the VSA & Accessibility, a Jean Kennedy Smith Arts & Disability Program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, proudly presents its annual International Art Program for Children with Disabilities. Yo Soy... Je Suis... I am... the World is an exciting opportunity for children with disabilities from around the world to display their artwork side-by-side in an online exhibition. A selection of artwork from the online entries will be chosen for a live exhibition in Washington D.C.!

Artwork must be submitted by June 8, 2016. Children with disabilities, grades pre-kindergarten-12 (or equivalent), are eligible to submit. Group projects are accepted as long as all artists are students with disabilities. Both 2-dimensional (preferred) and 3-dimensional works will be accepted, but not larger than 18x24 inches.
