About the Workshop
Summer fun starts with an interactive and exciting workshop series focusing on Universal Design for Learning, authentic student assessment strategies, adaptive materials and inclusion strategies for instruction in the classroom, and movement!  The day includes an energetic welcome and keynote to get you pumped up, followed by three concurrent workshops. You won’t want to miss out on this opportunity, come join in the fun! The workshop will include a break for lunch.

Artwork Purpose and Theme
This year’s Columbus Arts Ball will be focused around the Ronald McDonald House.  The Ronald McDonald house is a place that gives families “hope” by providing a family feel with warm dinners and caring people to come back to, after time spent at the hospital.  The RMH is known as the “House with a Heart”. This year we have a new challenge of how to present artwork at the event for silent auction. We want to emphasize the ‘Heart’ and ‘Hope’ concepts of Ronald McDonald House without the obvious “McDonald’s” symbols.
