A Very Special Arts Festival is a one of a kind event that celebrates Knox County Students with diverse abilities and the various artistic skills they are learning in the classroom.  The event is not a competition, but an opportunity for students with disabilities to share their talents, works of art, and accomplishments with the community.  Through this event, we hope to encourage and stimulate feelings of self-worth within these students.

The event includes a wide variety of activities in music, dance, drama, and visual arts.  Workshops of “make and take” arts and crafts, demonstrations, exhibits of art work, and performances by individuals with disabilities are all elements of the festival. Students will enjoy spending time with local mascot/character favorites, an exhibit from the Knoxville Zoo mobile, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, a DJ, and more!

Supported by AKIMA Women’s Club of Knoxville, The Pilot Club, West High School, and West Knoxville Civitan Club, the event is a united effort between Dogwood Arts, the University of Tennessee Departments of Art and Special Education, and Knox County Schools.
