Palette Pals, a new student organization at the Ohio State University, is inviting teens and adults with developmental disabilities to take part in a free, recreational art program.

Organizer Kaitlin Herman said the aim is to create interaction among OSU students, people with developmental disabilities and their families, while empowering the creativity of the disabilities community.

Herman was a Special Olympics coach back home in Medina County and worked with the county board there to offer painting nights. “That’s how I got started, and I wanted to do something similar here,” she said.

Palette Pals provides all painting supplies. Painting nights are planned for 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays at West Central School, 1481 W. Town St. Click on the QR code to register or email [email protected]
