Unified Art

The mission of Special Olympics Connecticut's Unified Art Program, administered by CAS (the Connecticut Association of Schools) is to provide collaborative opportunities in the visual arts for school-aged children with and without intellectual disabilities. Each child is given the opportunity to develop artistically, experience joy, and participate in the sharing of their gifts as they create new friendships with peers and showcase their work in community settings.

The Unified Art Program provides a forum for positive social interaction between students with intellectual disabilities and those without disabilities. The artist partnership cultivates a greater understanding of oneself, and of others. Working collaboratively leads to new friendships, improved self-esteem and positive changes in attitude, behavior and performance. This program fosters an inclusive school community where the values of tolerance, patience, and sensitivity are cornerstones.
