Making Art Accessible for Everyone.
We all want to create something that helps us experience beauty or create beauty. The innovative Zot Artz tools are the instruments to reach individuals of all abilities, creating life-affirming experiences for everyone.
DWAYNE SZOT, FOUNDER OF ZOT ARTZ
Dwayne Szot, founder and president of Zot Artz, is just the right combination of artist, engineer, and big brother to excel at helping children with disabilities experience the joy of making a mark and creating art.
Szot grew up in a mid-western foster home with a foster brother and sister who had Cerebral Palsy. Other children and adults with disabilities lived in the home, and Szot observed and respected the special challenges they faced. He credits that experience for giving him the courage and motivation to create the “painting wheelchair,” one of Zot Artz’ most popular art tools, to help children with disabilities create art.
