Location Kalamazoo, Michigan

At Zot Artz, we design and make adaptive art tools so that children with disabilities can create huge, amazing art pieces. The Zot Artz tools and facilitated art events entertain and teach children at fairs, fundraisers, and festivals, or as part of everyday recreation, education, and therapy programs.

Zotz Art eventZot Artz Arts for All provides services, programs, art tools and supplies that allow individuals with different levels of abilities to creatively express themselves.

We do this differently than anyone else. Rather than finding ways for people with disabilities to participate in activities for non-disabled people, we create entirely new activities and projects for people with disabilities and invite those without disabilities to join in.

Getting Started with Zot Artz

There are several ways to get started with Zot Arts adaptive art tools, ranging from do-it-yourself to a facilitated Art Event where we do everything for you. You can:

Purchase Zot Artz tools from the catalog.
Use them over and over, share them with other organizations, and make art an every day event for children with disabilities. With our training video and telephone support from Zot Artz, you’ll be ready to roll, stamp, print and draw in no time.

Purchase Zot Artz tools from the catalog and have a Zot Artz Workshop.
Train your whole staff to use the tools and to be more creative. Many people don’t consider themselves to be artists, and the Zot Artz Workshop helps them feel comfortable creating art with children and their families. This is great combined with a Zot Artz facilitated Art Event. You get the tools, get trained, and then practice in the Art Event. Order Form.

Have Zot Artz create a customized art event for you.
We bring the tools (on loan), supplies, and an experienced artist facilitator to your site. We set everything up, paint, stamp, roll and draw with the kids and make sure you have a colorful, fun, attention-getting event with great art pieces to show for it. Paintings,gift boxes, shirts and other creations can be gifts, prizes or fundraising articles. Create awareness of your organization, have a fundraiser, or entertain kids at a fair, festival, school, grand opening, or care center.

View or download our Activities Guide.
This guide is designed to give you ideas and get you started using the art tools in your unique setting. As with most other things, this guide will work best if you customize it to suit the individuals you work with — their talents, abilities, and needs. As you become more comfortable with the art tools and activities, you will undoubtedly have some great ideas of your own. Please share them with us and we will share them with others. And remember, this is art, not rocket science. Have fun, get messy, be creative, and make art!

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injury can result in paralysis of the muscles used for breathing; paralysis and/or loss of feeling in all or some of the trunk, arms, and legs; weakness; numbness; loss of bowel and bladder control; and numerous secondary conditions including respiratory problems, pressure sores, and sometimes fatal spikes in blood pressure. Approximately 12,000 new spinal cord injuries occur in the U.S. each year. A majority of injuries occur from motor vehicle accidents, falls, work-related accidents, sports injuries, and penetrations such as stab or gunshot wounds.
