Everyone is Special
Adaptive Arts Programming for Special Education Classrooms
Amazement Square has maintained a successful partnership with LAUREL Regional School, a public school for students who are severely and profoundly mentally or physically handicapped or autistic, for more than 11 years. Our adaptive arts programming has received national recognition and now, thanks to support from The John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts VSA Program, these unique programs are being expanded into special education classrooms across Virginia! We are currently offering 6-week sessions of visual arts programming to classrooms in the Lynchburg area. This year’s theme “UBUNTU: Yo Soy…Je Suis…I Am…Because you are” focuses on connections across race, culture, religion, and experience through shared art experiences. Specifically we will reflect on the ideals of service, freedom, justice, courage, and gratitude.

As a Partner in Education with the Lynchburg City Schools, Amazement Square celebrated its 11th year in an ongoing partnership with LAUREL Regional Program. Serving students ages 4-21, this program offers hands-on workshops and museum visits to youth who are living with severe physical and/mental challenges. These programs have been tailored to student needs and provide an opportunity for teachers and students to develop portfolios for the Virginia Alternative Assessment Program.
