A World of Possibilities March 31, 2024


March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. As a part of their celebration of this month and this year’s theme, ‘A World of Possibilities’, the New York State Council on Developmental Disabilities (CDD) opened itself up for submissions from individuals and organizations around the state for their digital art gallery, featuring activities the artist(s) with a Developmental Disability enjoys or something they would like to do now or in the future.
The IAHD Champions decided to create a visual art piece to send to the CDD. In collaboration with the IAHD Art Department, they painted, traced, and colored over a span of a few weeks to make the magnificent piece seen here.

Their submission ultimately made it into the slideshow of the all the art the CDD received! Jump to 5:48 in the video below to see the Champions’ work.

Congratulations to all of our Champions for this accomplishment and thank you to all those who helped them complete this project!
