The Augusta Training Shop, a non-profit in Augusta, GA, provides a necessary avenue for adult artisans with cognitive and physical disabilities to grow and share the talents they possess.

Disney asked these artists from Augusta to make snowflake decorations for Animal Kingdom.  Disney then invited these amazing artists to Walt Disney World to enjoy seeing their work that has been “sprinkled” on the shops and buildings in Discovery Island as you walk toward the Tree of Life.

Glad that Disney employs artisans with disabilities to help decorate the parks?
