Artful Healing offers a specially designed program for children ages 8-12 on the Autism Spectrum, including Asperger’s Syndrome, accompanied by a parent or caregiver. Upon arrival children will be divided into groups by age and/or needs.  

The Beyond the Spectrum program meets one Saturday per month from 10:30 am-12 pm. Each class lasts an hour and a half and combines gallery exploration with an art-making activity.
