That’s right. Santa knows many languages, including American Sign Language (ASL).

Signing Santa Claus - sponsored annually thanks to Barton Creek Square Mall - gives area children who use ASL to communicate, the opportunity to relay their holiday wishes directly to Santa, and on to the North Pole.

Volunteers and students from the Austin Optimists Clubs and Texas School for the Deaf (TSD) provide each child with a free photo on Santa’s lap and a small treat from his workshop, while TSD students perform to holiday music in American Sign Language.

Austin Deaf Club, 8818 Cullen Ln, Austin TX 78748
$10 online, $15 at the door.

Poetry is never fully experienced until you have seen Terrylene's American Sign Language (ASL) Poetry!

Poetry centers in visual movement and spatial use. Terrylene rhythmic handshapes, graceful movements and stirring iconic image-provoking powerful feelings reveals her true self.

You have never known music until you see the music orchestrated through Terrylene hands. Her poetry is sure to take your breath away.
