Each class will introduce emerging artists to a wide variety of media, encouraging self expression through the development and practice of art and design fundamentals.

Art Academy for Autism is an arts education initiative designed for children and young adults on the autism spectrum. This program focuses on nurturing artistic development and abstract thinking skills within a group environment. Our art educators believe that self expression can help students build personal connections, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and learn a wide variety of artistic skills.
