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 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.
