What do pumpkins and disability have in common?
Each is unique in how we view it. Join us as we celebrate "EVERYTHING PUMPKIN" as eight artists showcase their own unique art pieces, benefitting Easterseals Capper Foundation through an online auction. Each artist is challenged with creating a work of art, using the medium of choice, inspired by "EVERYTHING PUMPKIN". Auction proceeds will help fund programs and services provided to all ages - infants through adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities - through efforts of therapy and training at ESCF. One area of therapy for adults served at ESCF is an "art lab", where adults create paintings, crochet work, soaps and lotions and sculpting, to name a few mediums. The ability of self-expression through art helps develop dexterity, cognitive skills, eye/hand coordination and serves as an outlet of their talent.
The artwork may be viewed at Westar Energy, 818 S Kansas from 12pm on October 2nd through October 6th, and then at Leaping Llama Artisan Shop, 730 S Kansas for the First Friday Artwalk.
