More about Arts for All: Arts for All is a leader in providing accessible arts education in Tucson. The mission is to build confidence and promote self-esteem by providing creative experiences to adults with physical and cognitive disabilities who might not otherwise have access to art. The Arts for All Exhibition will focus on art-making using traditional methods as well as using Laser Art Technique, or LAT, a method devised for mobility. By using a laser, mounted on custom headgear, the artist can direct their artistic creations through the laser onto a tracker. A tracker will act as the artist’s hands and can stand by the canvas and paint what the artist directs.
