Hozhoni Art Gallery Team A


The result of this project is an assistive device to help people with disabilities create art. The objective of the project is to provide a system to meet the needs of the artists at the Hozhoni Art Gallery. This project is of interest because it positively impacts the lives of those hindered by disabilities. Completing this project benefits the welfare of the public, which is an important code of ethics for the engineering department. This project benefits the Hozhoni advisers financially and the artists spiritually. It enables the artist to produce higher quality works with increased efficacy, as well as letting them know that people care about them and their skills. This boost in artist morale will result in improving the quality of their work, thereby allowing the Hozhoni Art Gallery to receive bolstered financial and reputational benefits. People with different disabilities have difficulty using regular tools easily and safely; by providing them with the right tools, we can help the artists at Hozhoni show the world how creative they are without limitations. The resultant product of this project should be a system that will provide a work surface that is wheelchair accessible and can provide a work surface for clients with limited mobility.
