Art for Kosair Kids®
LVA partnered with Kosair Charities and Fund for the Arts to bring programming to Home of the Innocents and Visually Impaired preschool for 28 weeks as part of Art for Kosair Kids®
At Visually Impaired Preschool, our curriculum developed student's fine motor skills while acting as an exploration of senses with an emphasis on sound and tactile materials. Students created various musical instruments to be used in conjunction with musical therapy classes and also explored tactile materials to encourage pre-literacy development. During the 28 weeks we saw a huge amount of social development between students as they worked together to create individual and collaborative works of art.
At Home of The Innocents, we programmed traditional art therapy sessions as well as giving students the opportunity to explore different artistic practices including photography, design, and painting. The session resulted in each student designing their own coloring book, creating their own narrative through photography, as well as contributing to a permanent mural installed at Home of The Innocents.
