"Art in Me" is Asperger's Alliance Art program, it was developed by Associate and 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 at Reach Church beginning January 23rd and will conclude with a celebration and Art Show.
