I am a "non-artist" who loves to teach about art (I coordinate Art Smart at North Hill Elementary) and this program sounds amazing!

My oldest child is a kindergartener at Hampton but I have been a special ed teacher for 19 years in another district. For many years I taught adult SXI (18-26 yr olds) in a school with very low parent support and participation. I know how hard it can be to want to provide worthwhile opportunities for my students but not have the means to do so unless it was coming out of my own pocket. Adaptive art is so worthwhile. Good luck in your pursuits!

Hello! My name is Ms. Kristi McAllister!

Here is a little more about me…

I am a teacher for the Adult Transition Program and Services (ATPS) at the Dr. John M. Schultz Educational Campus.

I love my students because…

Even though I am the teacher, they have already taught me so much. While on the exterior it may not seem that they have opinions and wants, they most certainly do. I have taken the time to pay very close attention to their movements, eye gazes, facial expressions and body language to understand them and see them for who they are. They each are unique and have beautiful personalities! They are truly a gift.

More about my project…

RCS adult transition program and services (ATPS) students with multiple impairments (SXI) would love the opportunity to attend an art class every week at the Paint a Miracle studio located in downtown Rochester (30 classes this school year).

This opportunity will give students a chance to create art that they can showcase and sell if they so choose.

The main principles of the ATPS is for students to develop independence with the community through community relationships. This program offers the opportunity to create art with the support and accommodations that students to be independent and participate fully within our community.

Paint a Miracle is so thrilled to have our students attend their program, that they have offered a grant for half the cost.

♥ This is where you can help! ♥

Help us match the grant!

Your support will foster independence, community connections, and the opportunity to participate in the community. This will enhance the lives of students in a positive way! Thank you for your consideration!
