Buddy Art back in session

The fall session of Buddy Art has begun, bringing children with special needs and college students together through art.

Offered by Williamsburg Contemporary Art Center, the Buddy Art program serves children ages 7 and older who have special needs, physical disabilities or both.

Each child gets a "buddy," a student volunteer from the College of William and Mary.

Together, buddies explore a variety of art stations with activities ranging from finger-painting and drawing to clay and collage.

Parents are welcome to participate or observe.

Fall sessions include Sept. 10 and 17, Oct. 22 and 29 and Nov. 5. Classes occur from 3-4 p.m. in rooms A and B at James City County Recreation Center.

For more information, contact Buddy Art coordinator Karen Schwartz at 757-879-4328 or buddy.art.kids@gmail.com.

The Buddy Art program is free. To register, check out visitwcac.org/what-we-do/community-activities/buddy-art.
