Classes & Collaborations 

The Side by Side program was created by Arts for All Kentucky (formerly VSA) in 2004 for school age kids with special needs in communities across Kentucky.

Side by Side programs offer a series of studio art classes taught by an approved teaching artist. After completing the classes, young artists are partnered with a professional artist mentor from their community to create a collaborative piece . A public exhibition with an opening reception where students are recognized for their achievements is the final phase of the program.

If interested in enrolling a child, please download and complete the REGISTRATION FORM. Additional downloads include a PROGRAM FLYER and PARENT LETTER, or for more information. 

Side by Side classes are held February 12-March 12, 2022 at the Kentucky Museum. Class size is limited and registration is required.
