The Suzanne Vitale Clinical Education Complex at WKU is offering Arts at Home with Andee, an innovative, virtual art experience program for participants in the Renshaw Early Childhood Center and the Kelly Autism Program Prime Time Program. This program is generously funded by Arts for All Kentucky, a non-profit organization that provides opportunities in the arts for children and adults with disabilities.

What began as an on-site art program provided by acclaimed artist Andee Rudloff has developed into a virtual art experience during our Safe at Home experience with the coronavirus pandemic. Rudloff will be providing three weeks of lessons and activities via email for students at the Suzanne Vitale Clinical Education Complex to complete at home. The goal is for the entire family to be involved in this experience and share stories about how it has impacted them during this unique time. Based on the feedback from families, Rudloff also will create chalk murals in the CEC building for students to use upon their return.

Rudloff is a consultant and gifted artist working predominantly in Kentucky and Tennessee. She has more than 20 years of experience as a professional artist including exhibitions in Bowling Green, Nashville, Tenn., New York, N.Y., Taipei, Taiwan, and other national and international exchanges.
