SDMS Students participate in the Very Special Arts Festival
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)-- 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.
It's 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, the Dogwood Arts Festival wants to encourage and stimulate feelings of self-worth within these students.
