AccessSFUSD’s Spring Arts Spectacular showcased students’ hard work and creativity through visual, performing, and media art pieces to close out the school year.

The inclusive arts showcase on May 30 featured visual and performing arts created by 20 students in the AccessSFUSD program. The event featured student-created weavings and screen printing in collaboration with Haight Street Art Center as well as jewelry in collaboration with local artist Bottle of Clouds.

The packed auditorium at The Arc featured a performance by a Bollywood fitness dance class, and a theater performance in collaboration with American Conservatory Theater which focused on different types of television programming that represent people with disabilities. Visual art projects were also shown including stop-motion animation films created with the Walt Disney Family Museum and a screening of a music video film project.

AccessSFUSD: The Arc is a community-based program for students ages 18-22 with disabilities. The program focuses on teaching functional life skills within a community setting. AccessSFUSD strives to help students discover their passions, unlock their potential, and become involved member of the community. Through individualized programs that works with each student’s goals and interests, students further develop their skills, gain vocational experience, and work toward becoming self-determined individuals who are active in their community.
