JDAIM: Visual Expressive Art Gallery
The Jewish Special Needs Consortium of Greater Philadelphia invites you to participate in a Visual Expressive Arts Gallery celebrating Jewish Disability Awareness & Inclusion Month 2018. We are inviting children and teens from schools, camps and youth groups across the Greater Philadelphia area to create a work of visual art in response to this statement:
Making the Invisible Visible.
How do you imagine that people see you? What is special and unique about who you are? If people could see who you are on the inside, what would they see? What would the world look like if we got to know people before we judged them based on appearances?
Every work of art will be displayed in an online gallery at jewishlearningventure.org. Selected works of art may receive special honors. You may submit art throughout the month of February, but to be considered for special honors, please submit your art by February 28th.
