4D Presents: Art for Autism & Other Complex Disabilities (Fundraiser / Performing Arts Festival)
What is the ‘Art for Autism & Other Complex Disabilities’ fundraiser event?
Do you want to join other poets, musicians, performers, and other artists in an event to raise money for a newly developed special needs program in Northeast, Ohio? The C. A. R. E. (Cardinal Adult Readiness Education) Lab is a comprehensive transition program for adult-aged high school students with autism and other complex disabilities located at Mentor High School in Mentor, Ohio. This is a newly developed program in need of money for educational and therapeutic tools for the classroom; 4D will accomplish this through an all day fundraising extravaganza.
What is 4D Interactive Education©?
4D (IE) is an educational outreach program in the Northeast, Ohio area which harnesses the power of art to give children and young adults a dynamic educational experience. Founded in 2010 by artist and educator, Brandon Stroud, 4D continues to assist educators in conveying challenging material, lesson plans, or core standards to their students in fresh and inspiring ways. Similar to the famous Montessori approach to education, wherein emphasis is on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological development, 4D promotes lateral thinking and doing for every type of student. 4D projects are typically multi-sensory classroom installations and performances, original, immersive lesson-plans and activities, as well as powerful and memorable fundraising events and charities.
