Collaborative Artmaking: Art for Disability Justice (Ages 9-11)
What do you care about in your community? Through this collaborative artmaking class, students will explore disability justice. Disability justice is a movement that works to bring awareness about people with disabilities. That can mean many different things: how our buildings and cities are built to accommodate people or simply how we treat each other. Each student will create a visual art project inspired by disability justice in a medium they choose. Possible projects could include a zine or book, a poster series, or sticker series to engage our larger community.
- This is an On-site course. Students must follow current CDC + VDH guidance outlined on our website: visarts.org
