As Ashley Kuznia is attending the University of Kansas, Kalli Sorber is the new Moscow artAbility project director. Kalli, a senior at the University of Idaho, will be graduating fall of 2016 with a B.S. in Sociology as well as in Psychology. She works as an intern-trainee for the CDHD and has been closely involved with artAbility. Though Kalli is graduating, she will stay on through the spring of 2017 and will train a future director so the project may continue in the future. You can contact Kalli for information on the workshops, student volunteer opportunities, or any other artAbility questions.
University of Idaho students provide support as workshop-assistants and support the workshop participants in their artistic process. Though no experience is necessary to be a volunteer for artAbility, students were required to attend a one-hour instructional seminar PDF on how to appropriately and respectfully interact with and assist individuals with disabilities. Through these workshops, students got the chance to interact with individuals who have varying skills and abilities in addition to assisting them in their artistic process.
