Arts workshops for teenagers with physical disabilities

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Visit  Express Yourself Seattle  to apply and learn more.

Six free workshops exploring photography, creative writing, public speaking, theater, film-making and visual art, led by local professionals and teachers in Seattle, target teens with disabilities.

The program was created by Izabella Davis, a Junior at Shorecrest High School. Izabella grew up with a physical disability because of a neurological disorder. She is now mobile with only partial paralysis and has made it her mission to give back to other disabled teens.

I want to empower teens with physical disabilities to express themselves through artistic mediums.

Izabella set up the program with grants for funding from the clothing company Ann Taylor and Hillary Clinton's Vital Voices Global Initiative.

People can apply anytime throughout the course of the program, as it isn't mandatory to be able to make all of the sessions.
