Dogwood Arts: A Very Special Arts Festival

KNOXVILLE – A Very Special Arts Festival, a unique Dogwood Arts Festival event, celebrates the artistic achievements of Knox County school-aged disabled students, by providing an opportunity to showcase their talents in a welcoming, non-competitive environment.

Art touches us all, and A Very Special Arts Festival encourages feelings of creativity and self-worth for all students, regardless of ability, as the students express their creative talents through music, dance, drama, and visual arts. The festival will feature a wide variety of activities including crafting workshops, demonstrations, various exhibits and performances. Students will also enjoy musical entertainment, a mobile exhibit from the Knoxville Zoo, “walk abouts” from local team and business mascots, and much more.

The event will be held on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at West High School from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Admission is free. It is made possible thanks to the efforts of the University of Tennessee’s departments of Art and Special Education and Knox County Schools with support from the AKIMA Women’s Club of Knoxville, West High School and West Knoxville Civitan Club.
