Classes

VSA Florida coordinates inclusive art classes in communities across the state. Want to bring a class to your community?

  • Identify a group of at least 7 participants. Participants with or without any type of disability can be included.
  • Find a community space willing to share a room for classes at no charge (schools, libraries, places of faith, etc)
  • Call us and we’ll connect you with a professional teaching artist to teach visual art, music, dance and movement, literary arts, or drama. Each artist is trained to work with adaptive materials and alternative solutions to enable all participants to succeed.

Class fee: $10 per student per session. We generally run programs for six weeks at a time.
For more information, contact Wendy Finklea, Director of Programs at 813-974-0715 or wfinklea@usf.edu
