Fun with Cultures: African Adventures for Adults with Intellectual Developmental Disabilities

Music, dancing, food….oh my! In this class we will explore all aspects of what makes Africa exciting.  There will be taste testing, dancing, music, arts and crafts, and more. We will get to see how different our cultures are but just as wonderful. So join instructor Ashley Ashmore this summer and travel across the world and discover the African Culture. The class will culminate in a performance by students to be shared with family and friends!

Students may be dropped off at 5:30 p.m. at the UT Littlefield Café to socialize for 30 minutes with each other and volunteer students from UT. Students will then participate in an interactive discussion about African language, food, music and culture.  Here they can follow along with handouts of class slides and bring in their homework to discuss with their peers. All classes are located in the Biomedical Engineering (BME) building across from the Littlefield Café.  Families can pick up their student by the café at 7:30p.m.


There will be no class on Wednesday, July 2nd.
