The 2013 Accessible Expressions Ohio exhibition is currently on display at three Ohio venues for the months of April and May. If you are in Southeastern or Central Ohio in the next month, stop by and take a look!


Athens, OH


Columbus, Ohio (two locations on campus) 

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.

Event Date(s): June 18, 2013 -
09:00 to 14:30

About the Workshop
This engaging and interactive professional development session will focus on adaptive materials and inclusion strategies for instruction in the art class. We will experiment with adaptive materials and discuss classroom management as it pertains to students with disabilities.  This professional development session is appropriate for classroom teachers, art teachers, and teaching artists. You won’t want to miss out on this opportunity, come join in the fun! The workshop will include a break for lunch.
