453-The Facilitation Experience Workshop with Matheny Arts Access

Imagine yourself an artist. Now, imagine that you no longer have the ability to use your arms and legs and that you have limited use of speech. How would you go about your daily life and how would you be able to express yourself as an artist? These questions represent the unfortunate reality of the artists participating in the Matheny Arts Access Program. In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn what the term “facilitated arts program” means, how it works, and what it’s like to create art using one. During this workshop, participants will experience firsthand the difficulties and challenges of creating art in a facilitated art program by role playing as both an artist with a disability and that of a facilitating artist.
