Virtual Arts

Online Programs

Under Useful Links you can find the AFA Communication Boards in two versions: English/Spanish and English/Hmong. The Boards are a free resource for all , and are designed for people of any age who may have limited or developing verbal language abilities. They can be an incredibly useful tool for active engagement with art-making. By pointing to the word or phrase they want to express, individuals can become empowered and take ownership of their work, creating new opportunities for connection with others. Educators can also use the AFA Communication Boards to present choices of materials or colors, or support collaborative work with one student directing the actions of another.
