More than 450 pieces of original student art were on display at Central Riverside Elementary School’s (CRES) inaugural Art Walk last month. The featured artwork was created by the school’s deaf and hard of hearing students. With QR codes and smartphone technology, visitors viewed a video of students sharing their artists’ statements – not with their voices, but with American Sign Language. The funds raised from the event will fund an art mural project for the school’s cafeteria next year.
Duval County 2014 Teacher of the Year finalist Iris Carol uses sign language to teach students. Caro is one of three teachers, paraprofessionals, and interpreters who work with children in the school’s Total Communication Program.
