A visual arts program for children with disabilities, SIDE BY SIDE provides mentoring collaboration with professional adult artists from the local community. At the end of the teaching session, each student artist is paired with a local artist in a one on one session where they create a collaborative work of art. The program concludes with a public exhibition of an individual student work, the collaborative piece and a piece by each professional artist, all presented SIDE BY SIDE.
