Hello my name is Annette, and have been a counselor for 10 years specializing in behaviors. I began my journey of introducing art lessons during my career working in residential group home environments and day treatments for DD Adults. I found art is communication without words. Many adults with developmental and other disabilities are talented artists. Painting for adults with disabilities offers opportunities to engage in creating a variety of visual arts for personal enrichment. Many artists produce beautiful paintings through step by step lessons that encourage involvement in art improves fine motor skills, is emotionally enriching, and can be calming, which is beneficial for many clients, including those with autism.
Generate excitement through art
Artistic expression is a powerful outlet for personal and social development. Arts and crafts encourage people with disabilities to participate in activities that develop and enhance their creative talents. I offer group art classes in Goodyear and surrounding areas for adults with intellectual and developmental disability (IDD), autism, Senior adults, and children. Individuals are supported at the level they need, including incorporating techniques to allow full participation in mixed media arts.
What a perfect way to encourage recreation time for groups...at your organization, residency and facility.
Classes are offered in small group design for 2 hour sessions to allow for quality of engagement. Materials are supplied.
