Art Classes for Autistic Kids (“Artism”) at the Urban Easel
Does your child like to draw or paint?
Art lessons taught by artist Rachel Cox at The Urban Easel will appeal to ages 8-14 across all cognitive levels and abilities.
In these specialized classes, emphasis will be placed on helping your child find a way to express his thoughts and feelings through art in a manner most suited to him. Participants can benefit from texture painting and mixed media, sponges and other tactile objects, and from the use of paintbrushes. Before your child’s first lesson, you will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire in order to help us get to know your child better.
There are many benefits of art lessons for those with autism. Art lessons increase opportunities for self-expression and develop a sense of pride and accomplishment. Some with autism have developed a life-long interest and talent for art after having art lessons.
Siblings without autism are also welcome to participate and advance their skills and knowledge in art.
Students are also welcome to show up for a single session to give it a try to see if they might benefit. For more information, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
