Art and Creativity Development (Basic)
In this 60-minute class, adult participants will engage in the following activities under the guidance of an instructor, with the support of caregivers or aides as needed. No prior experience and/or proficiency is required.
- Creating, viewing and sharing of artwork
- Exploring the senses through art (e.g., touching paint, wet clay and soft fabrics)

This class is intended for adults age 18 and older with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities. Participants who require a 1:1 aide or caregiver are required to bring this person with them to class.
We strive to meet each person’s individual needs by incorporating their unique interests and personality into each art session. Individual instruction and demonstrations will be given at each session.
This class is offered through Seattle Children’s Alyssa Burnett Adult Life Center. Learn how to enroll.
