    Annual Art Festival

    Very Special Art Festival is open to all visual artists under the age of 26, from novices to professional artists. The aim of the festival is to foster inclusion opportunities for children and young adults with disabilities through creative art activities, and to promote diversity and acceptance within the Queens communities. Join us and enjoy exciting art activities in a positive environment! The 2017 Very Special Art Festival was hosted by the Department of Education at St. John's University. The festival included a creative art contest and various fun activities under the theme of "Possibilities."
