They Are Us

Autism spectrum and special needs children and adults are OUR brothers and sisters in the community. However, even in this modern era of heightened awareness and social consciousness, their gifts keep them hidden in plain sight. Are they in your dance class? On your baseball, track or tennis team?
Art is the most welcoming club for ALL to join. In the 8 years that I have been providing guided art making, I have witnessed confidence building, communication and dexterity improvements, and simple, unadulterated "Joy in the Journey".
I want to offer more individuals the chance to create art. I want NO ONE LEFT BEHIND! To that end, I am setting up a Go Fund Me site to gather money and offer scholarships! I am planning to launch this effort soon! Stay posted, friends!
