Art For All at ArtFest Fort Myers
Art For All, an all-new activity focused on art activities for disabled and autistic youth (and adults) is debuting at ArtFest Fort Myers 2022.
Zot Artz is the main art feature of Art For All and their focus is “Rather than finding ways for people with varied challenges to participate in activities for non-challenged people, we create entirely new activities and projects for people with challenges and invite those without challenges to join in.” Get a sneak peek at ZotArtz.com
Kids love making art. At Art For All youth (or adults) use adaptive art tools to create huge, amazing art pieces – murals about 16 x 80 feet. Pogo giant painting stamps are great for people with grip or stability or vision challenges. While wheel chair paint rollers attach to wheel chairs and the user can make their chairs paint on the ground. Each person creates their own take-home poster as well. Artistic helpers are available for guidance, as needed. Parents are welcome to participate with their youth.
Youth will also enjoy the Publix Art Yard with art projects; Art Under 20 the high school exhibit and competition; Chalk Block where high school students create masterpieces on the ground with chalk; and Publix Community Stage with diverse entertainment.
ArtFest Fort Myers is Feb. 5 (10 a.m. – 5 p.m.) and Feb. 6 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) in downtown Fort Myers. Find more festival info at www.ArtFestFortMyers.com
