September 16, 2010

Ronnee by Herbert Freeman

The Mexico School of Down Art which began as a recreational activity for the clients of the John Langdon Down Foundation has blossomed into its flagship program.  The school offers formal training in the fine arts for students with Down syndrome of all ages and economic backgrounds.  The mission of the school is to “promote social integration, reaffirm identity, and elevate the self-esteem of people with Down syndrome.”

Art exhibits featuring the work of the school’s students have been mounted from Asia to Europe and the Americas.
