Happy New School Year!

It is a brand new year at Sarasota County Schools! Any Given Child Sarasota is excited to embark on another year of strong arts education experiences and opportunities for teachers and students. We look forward to sharing with you highlights and monthly updates. Stay tuned! 
Super Powered Stories

Last week we welcomed Richard Jenkins, a published cartoonist, writer and illustrator for an engaging workshop on character and story creation for students with disabilities. Sarasota County Schools ESE teachers had the opportunity to learn how to teach students to draw their own super heroes and villains and unlock their story-making potential. Thank you VSA Arts and Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall for making it possible!
