Special education students explore the arts with local artists.
In two area special education early childhood centers, classrooms are bustling each week with exciting visitors: our teaching artists. This school year, ACT is working with South Godwin Head Start and Huntington Woods Head Start, reaching dozens of kids aged 2-5 with various disabilities and developmental delays.
Every week, our teaching artists come ready and full of energy to encourage and explore the joys of percussion, visual art exploration, and creative movement. Students will have the opportunity to explore a variety of art and music activities with rotating themes and teaching artists. Visual art projects so far this year have included creating sensory bags with pom-poms and glitter, as well as making fall picnic scenes with cloth for picnic blankets and colored paper circles as plates.
For the 2022-2023 school year, these programs have been made possible by Michigan Arts & Culture Council, Amway, and the many other donors who support ACT programs year-round.
