SPREAD THE MESSAGE OF INCLUSION – MOSAIC ART PROJECT

A fun way to spread the message of inclusion is to come up with a campaign to remind us that community is best when we include ALL abilities. This activity will be facilitated by an Education Specialist with the Summit County Developmental Disabilities Board and the the Akron Children’s Museum’s Executive Director, Traci Buckner. Please register separately for the film and watch prior to joining this workshop.

  • FREE Craft kits for all abilities loaded with the supplies you need.
  • Craft kits can be picked up at locations in Cleveland and Akron. If you are unable to pick up a kit, please contact us 2 weeks prior to arrange other means of obtaining the kits.
  • Guidance will be provided to ensure a successful art experience to children of all abilities.
  • We want to see what you created! Share finished projects at Cle.ReelAbilities@gmail.com or https://www.facebook.com/reelabilitiescle/.
