Art for all organization
The mission of the organization is to use art as a media/ educational tool for developing skills and talents of handicapped and non-handicapped individual.
Committed to the belief that no one is born perfect and despite our limitations, we all have a contribution to make, Professor Dr. Channarong Pornrungroj, the Dean of the Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts at Chulalongkorn University initiated an art program for disabled children in 1997.

Teachers with gifted and average children, along with the blind, deaf and physically or mentally impaired all take part in a diverse set of activities. They range from musical, visual and mixed media, dance, drama to literature experiences. It is through this variety of activities that they learn about cooperative teamwork, society, the creative process and themselves.
