About This Study

This project really began last year when I created and taught a “unified art class” where kids with special needs and worked on art projects with a buddy once a week at McDougle Middle School. However, because summer programs this year have been mostly cancelled due to Covid-19, many kids are now stuck at home without a way to pass the time, relieve stress and possibly express themselves. This is why I wanted to figure out a way to continue my program during the summer because even though school is over, kids’ need for creativity (and a way to occupy the time) is not. So I will be virtually leading art classes for kids with special needs this summer by creating fun art projects and providing them with all of the supplies and virtual instruction.
