The "Rainbow Factory"--Arts and the Handicapped.
Gray, Ann
The study examined attitudes of special education teachers who visited the 1983 Very Special Arts Festival (VSAF) held in Anchorage, Alaska. A review of the literature addresses contributions of arts experiences to the total development of handicapped students. The history and goals of the National Committee, Arts for the Handicapped (NCAH) are outlined. Forty-two teachers completed questionnaires on their attitudes toward the VSAF, classroom implications, and attitudes toward the ideals and philosophy of the NCAH. Findings suggested that the teachers would like guidance in developing arts activities with their students, such as workshops with artists and courses for credit in arts and the handicapped. Teachers were in definite agreement with the general philosophies behind NCAH. (CL)
