I'm not sure if my posting was clear, I meant if anyone has any artists
that they would suggest to be included when teaching art hisory about
artists with dissabilities. (ie: Chuck Close) Also here's another of my
favorite lessons: Design a 3d Paper Playground. Each student can roll
pieces of colored paper and glue or tape the ends to construct paper
swing sets, slides, a fishing pond, flowers, park benches, trees, etc. I
let them pick a 12x18 colored construction paper base and they can work
alone or with a partner. I show them how to cut slits to build forms
with. We talk about how you should include things for children to do as
well as things parents might like ( a picnic spot). Trees for shade so
the slide isn't too hot. Water fountains that kids can go under to cool
off. Ruth
