The Department of Fine Arts will host two events on Wednesday, February 6th, 2019. The first event will be a presentation on the topic of teaching students with disabilities in the arts classroom by exemplary special education educator, Alycia Barnfield Williams and distinguished arts administrator, art educator, and art therapist, Larry Barnfield (recipient of numerous awards, including the Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Govenor’s Award in the Arts). This will be followed by a presentation by Barnfield on the profession of art therapy. Both presentations will include examples of real world strategies associated with the areas.
