Description

The Adaptive Arts Academy is a collaboration between SCERA and RAH to provide a collegiate style arts program for adults with special needs age 18 and older. Everyone can have a voice through the arts! All classes for summer 2020 will be taught virtually via Zoom with future classes taught on location at SCERA Center for the Arts and also available via zoom for those who live out of the area or have other health concerns. Participants need to be able to participate in classes independently or with a personal assistant or aide provided by the student’s caregiving team or family to provide assistance and support to enable the student fully participate. Class time is limited and will be structured from start to finish. Please plan to be logged in at least 5 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
