Students with autism spectrum disorder and other special needs will explore a variety of art projects specifically geared to their interest and ability both in two-and-three dimensional approaches. The class fosters communication, creativity, and problem solving with hands-on activities involving clay, paint, and other materials. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.

This course is generously funded by a grant from Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and The Provident Bank Foundation.

In the event of a closure due to the COVID-19 virus, this class will move online using Zoom. There will be no refunds or credits for classes that were scheduled to take place on site but were moved to an online format for health and safety purposes.
