Access art: Special needs

Participants will create and discuss art with specially trained educator, Tinia Clark. Clark is the Executive Director of Sidestreet Art Beat, Inc., an organization whose mission is to provide awareness for the healing power of the arts through engagement.

This program invites individuals with special needs and varying exceptionalities to meet once a month at Polk Museum of Art to engage in viewing and discussing artwork that is exhibited. The program is designed to create social engagement and encourage creativity and self expression. The group meets for the talk and tour at 11:00 am on the 1st Saturday of every month unless it falls on a holiday weekend. After the tour the group meets at Kelly Rec. Center to make art inspired by the museum visit.

Registration preferred but not required.
