Meet the Instructor, Kali Picard

I’m a local artist and ASHA certified Speech-Language Pathologist. I have worked with a wide range of individuals with various disabilities, ranging from the ages of 2 to 102 years old. The inspiration for the creation of Borderless Color came from an observation. Meaningful art did not appear to be very accessible to the neurodivergent community. The sign to move forward with this idea came from a visit to the Frist Art Museum in Nashville, Tennessee, where an exposition of art created by individuals with disabilities showed the uncapped potential of the neurodivergent community. After seeing what Nashville was providing for their neurodivergent community, I decided to create a similar experience for neurodivergent Acadiana residents. The rest is history or so they say, and Borderless Color was created to provide a safe place for students to explore the arts through PROCESS and PLAY, while increasing overall self-esteem and confidence.

Everyone is an ARTIST!

Our goals encompass a multifaceted approach to education, aiming to cultivate enriched learning experiences by seamlessly blending PROCESS and PLAY, with a specific emphasis on instilling a profound appreciation for the arts. We are committed to providing students with numerous opportunities to showcase their creative endeavors, fostering a sense of pride and accomplishment. Additionally, our mission extends beyond the classroom as we actively engage in community-based projects, utilizing the transformative power of the arts to connect and contribute positively to our local surroundings. Amidst these ambitions, we hold a fundamental principle dear – to ensure that our educational journey is not only impactful but also enjoyable. Embracing the philosophy that learning is most effective when accompanied by enjoyment, we wholeheartedly advocate for the inclusion of FUN as an integral aspect of our educational endeavors.
