Belmont University’s Department of Education hosted an arts camp for kids on Saturday, October 15, in cooperation with VSA Tennessee and The Down Syndrome Association of Middle Tennessee.  The car-themed visual art and music activities were designed to help children with Down syndrome learn their shapes. The camp kicked off  VSA TN’s Statewide STEM based arts initiative which includes 12 state-wide residencies, supported through the John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

This art camp was part of a service learning project for both education faculty members Dr. Sally Barton-Arwood and Dr. Cynthia Watkins’s “Meeting the Needs of Diverse Learners” and Barton-Arwood’s First Year Seminar on Disability Awareness.
