Creating Art In a Unique Way

Posted:

Tonight kids both with and without disabilities have the chance to get creative.

Dwayne Szot, a national artist, travels around the country demonstrating how art can be made by anyone.

Szot along with occupational therapy students from the University of Mary are helping kids make colorful masterpieces, with unique painting tools.

Grant Hillestad says it's a great way for him and other students to learn creative ways to help people who have a disability, enjoy everyday activities.

"It's just a whole lot of ideas how the creativity used can really spark some creativity in each of us on how we can apply the same concept to other activities, whether its playing Frisbee, hunting anything like that," Grand Hillestad said.

Carolyn Fogarty brought her son Riley who is autistic to tonight's event.

She says it's a great opportunity for Riley to do something in a way he's never been able to before.

"It's incredible I mean to give kids, whether or not they are challenged or not, to give them the opportunity to make art like this is so much fun, and something they probably won't be able to do again, so it's fun, very fun," Carolyn Fogarty said.

Tonight's event was held at Richholt Elementary School.

Szot will next head to Michigan to show kids how creative art can be.
