You asked, we listened! Beginning in January, Asperger's Alliance will be offering eight, 90- minute sessions that will incorporate learning basic art techniques through painting and other mediums. Additionally, our program will include activities to be completed at home and will commence with an Art Show. The cost is $30.00 for the tool kit which will come complete with all of the supplies necessary to complete projects and practice at home. Supplies and mediums for session activities will be provided. Registration is required by December 30th.
"Art in Me" is Asperger's Alliance Art program, it was developed by Art Director, Heather Mahaffey. The program focuses on getting creative ideas into the minds of our members and creative materials in their hands. It was formulated to inspire that there is a little artist in everyone and to promote personal expression without perceived ability or self proclaimed talent.
Art has been utilized in therapy for decades and even casual exposure is therapeutic. Our Asperger's family often think along alternative lines and can even have anxiety towards a particular activity. The projects are presented and completed in a safe and relaxed environment and often member driven without critique or criticism from peers or leader. Individuality and personal growth are encouraged.
Art in Me is scheduled the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays from 6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m. except in February (4th Tuesday Only) and May (1st Tuesday only).
