The mission of the Arts Work Program at Autistic Services, Inc. is to give people with autism the opportunity to get involved in the visual and performing arts. Communication is one of the challenges our participants face every day; visual art provides them a preferred means of expression. Artists are given many choices and encouraged to try new things, but the main objective is for them to find materials they feel comfortable with and create artmaking processes of their own.
