artAbility 2020-21

The Moscow artAbility Project is a student-led project supported by the University of Idaho’s Center on Disabilities and Human Development (CDHD) in collaboration with the Moscow Self-Advocate Leadership Network (SALN), Moscow Chapter.

The Project is on its seventh year, working to encourage community involvement and personal expression for adults with disabilities through participation in art workshops with local art instructors and UI students as volunteers.

Thank You for Your Support

Thank you to Stepping Stones, Inc. for funding this year's projects. 

To the private donor – artAbility is incredibly grateful for your generous donation. Thanks to your benevolence, artAbility is able to provide another year of art workshops for adults with developmental disabilities in the Moscow community. Thus far, your generosity has afforded the costs of art materials and will provide the opportunity for creative exploration and self-expression through art. We can't thank you enough!
