Review for ACADEMY OF SPECIAL DREAMS FOUNDATION , Pasadena, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As an employee with the City of Los Angeles we once again partnered with Academy of Special Dreams. Every year we work with them I am even more impressed with their dedication to developing artists. From teaching art to assisting in editing media material, whenever we needed help Academy was the first partner to offer assistance.

When the students participating in the Academy's programs arrived to the Artist's reception it filled my heart with joy to see so many excited, smiling faces. The student's enthusiasm and happiness was moving to all who witnessed it. There presence at the reception would not have been possible if it wasn't for the Academy coordinated transportation to our event. The Academy of Special Drams makes the dreams of people with talents who also happen to have a disability come true.

Review for ACADEMY OF SPECIAL DREAMS FOUNDATION , Pasadena, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Academy of Special Dreams showcases the abilities and talents of persons living with disabilities in LA County. I have met some of the artists and they all have different stories that they express through their art. I had the pleasure of hanging out with on of the Academy's Artist Kenneth James last month. He was very passionate about his work. His media of rip art helped him express his life experiences in the service of his country and the daily grind of living in LA. His art is moving and thought provoking and I would have never seen it if it wasn't for the Academy of Special Dreams.
