Please come to the art show below. It is an amazing example of how a few dedicated parents can successfully bring special needs and typical kids together. The parents who spearheaded the Drawn Together program and grant will be present, so please let me know if you'd like to meet them (or email them) and learn how to start a similar program in your own school district or area.
Drawn Together is a unique collection of art created by special education and general education students at five Redwood City schools. The students created art projects together and learned how diversity results in a stronger, more beautiful world.
Developed by SEPTAR, Drawn Together is part of a long-term strategy to build inclusive communities within our school district. The show will remain on display at the library through the end of June, 2008.
