Chalk, Walk, and Roll - Lancaster

From Friday 20 July 2012
To Saturday 21 July 2012

Creative expression is a primary human need, necessary for self-fulfillment and self-esteem.  Art is a form of creative expression in which individuals with disabilities can excel, given the opportunity. The Lancaster Festival along with Southeastern Ohio Center for Independent Living (SOCIL) invites you to Chalk, Walk and Roll! On Friday, July 20, during the Lancaster Festival ArtWalk, children and adults of all abilities can stamp, print and make your mark 6:30-8:00pm at Fountain Square, corner of Main and Broad Streets, downtown Lancaster! Use adaptive tools and shapes to create your very own exciting art creation to take home with you. This fun activity helps develop motor skills, concentration, social interaction, self-esteem and more.  Plan 5-20 minutes for activity. While supplies last.

On Saturday, July 21, during Festival Fair Day at the Fairfield County Fairgrounds, children with disabilities and without are invited to work together with internationally recognized artist and inventor of Zot Artz, Dwayne Szot to create a Zot Artz Mural from 10:00am-noon and 1:00-3:00pm. For more details about these two fun, family events, see SOCIL’s website at: www.socil.org or call SOCIL at 740.689.1494.

Dwayne Szot is the founder and president of Zot Artz, which was created to help children with disabilities experience the joy of making a mark and creating art with family and friends. Rather than finding ways for people with disabilities to participate in activities for non-disabled people, Szot created a way for children with disabilities to be creative and invite those without disabilities to join in to create works of art. Dwayne Szot grew up in a mid-western foster home with a foster brother and sister who had Cerebral Palsy. Other children and adults with disabilities lived in the home, and Szot observed and respected the special challenges they faced. He credits that experience for giving him the courage and motivation to create the “painting wheelchair.” For more information about Zot Artz, see Dwayne Szot’s website at: zotartz.com
