Folsom Lake College • Sacramento City College • Cosumnes River College • American River College

Folsom Lake College's Disabled Student Services and Programs (DSP&S) has hosted a Disability Awareness Art Week for the past eight years, with great success. This year we again will hold a week-long exhibit of artwork produced by students with disabilities. It will be held during the week of October 31st - November 4th, 2016.

The event will be held at the Folsom Lake College campus and will highlight the students' artistic achievements. It will feature painting, sculpture, drawing, photography and digital art media. The art week promotes the students' self-esteem, pride in their talents, and fosters an awareness of the creative achievements of students with physical, psychological, or learning disabilities.

Students with a verified disability who are currently enrolled in any of the four Los Rios Community College campuses (American River College, Cosumnes River College, Folsom Lake College, and Sacramento City College) are encouraged to submit their artwork. Each student must submit their artwork in digital format. The acceptable format for entries is JPEG (.jpeg) sent by e-mail or burned onto a CD-ROM or DVD. The DSP&S staff at Folsom Lake College is available to assist with these submissions and can be contacted at (916) 608-6611.

A Community Reception will be held in the Peregrine Room on Thursday, November 3rd (5:00 pm - 7:30 pm) to recognize the students' talents and will showcase their artwork. This event is open to the public. Five hundred dollars ($500) in stipends will be given to the top submissions in the form of: Best of Show ($300), and two Honorable Mentions ($100 each). These scholarship stipends will be awarded during the reception.

We are accepting submissions only from students with disabilities currently enrolled at any of the four Los Rios Community Colleges, and will accept submissions until 5pm, October 21st, 2016.
