Accessible Art is a program focused on constructing customized adaptive art tools for disabled youth with severe physical limitations, and fostering a nurturing and creative environment, where they can implement them and make art.

Accessible Art is a program focused on developing customized adaptations and accessible art tools for disabled youth with severe physical limitations, and leading regular adaptive art therapy classes in New York City where they can be used. The goal is to provide disabled youth with appropriate instruments, based on their particular physical needs and preferences, which will allow them the means to participate in art activities independently. In this way, disabled youth can have the freedom to create art to their fullest expression. Often, individuals with disabilities find that their physical limitations preclude them from having opportunities to take part in art activities, such as painting or drawing, using traditional methods. Accessible Art will fill that gap and open a whole new outlet to disabled youth who have an interest in pursuing art, but don’t have the ability to hold a paint brush in the conventional manner.
