Having a disability may limit your movement, may limit your mind, but it does not limit your creativity.
Individuals with profound disabilities can have exceptional abilities when it comes to uninhibited expression.
The Structured Sensory Art Project:
Enables individuals with profound disabilities to independently create works of art, and to benefit from all that engagement in art has to offer in terms of enjoyment, developing understanding and expressing oneself.
Supports settings to create an atmosphere of engagement and creativity.
Generates awareness of the abilities of individuals with profound disabilities, and of the individuals themselves, with the hope that this improved awareness will impact on campaigns such as Changing Places.
Uninhibited: The exhibition of the art work produced by the artists of The Structured Sensory Art Project toured the UK in 2015.
If you would like to arrange a training day focused on facilitating structured sensory art in your setting get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Photos of artists: Chloe, Gabriel, Zac, Harry, Hannah, Shannon and Zoe displayed with kind permission of their parents & carers.
