Art Classes & Workshops

We believe that anyone can make art with right the support when needed.

We believe in empowering artists of all abilities. Our classes and workshops explore the creative process and self-expression through various art media, subject matter, and techniques. We structure our classes and workshops based on the individual’s learning profile: strengths and weaknesses, interests and talents, learning style and unique language, learning and behavioral needs. Our instructors have experience and training in teaching special populations.

The Studio Art Program is at the center of our work, through which our artists experiment, develop, and create their artwork in a supported and professional studio environment and for our students who live at a distance, we offer online classes. We love to identify additional opportunities for our students to show their work on location and hope to soon be able to offer opportunities for them to sell their work, in our studio (in the near future).

We specialize working with children, teens, and adults who identify as neurodivergent and/or have sensory processing sensitivities or are diagnosed with autism. Sasha uses her expressive arts training to support students in their creative journey.
