ArtStream in Your Community

Classes for Your Community

ArtStream’s talented Teaching Artists lead a variety of workshops and classes for groups, schools, and private organizations. Classes are designed for people of all ages with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDDs), including autism. Learning through the arts is empowering. Classes/programs build upon entertaining and demanding games that encourage participants to be creative, to pay attention to others, to listen, to respond, to engage with others. Classes/programs foster social connections as participants practice communication skills like eye contact, listening, and self-awareness.  In the process, participants find their own voices and build their confidence; they discover their creativity and strengths; and they expand their capabilities and self-awareness. All of this, and more, while having fun!

Programs include:

  • Dance and movement
  • Drama and Storytelling
  • Music
  • Musical Theatre
  • Self-advocacy
  • Workplace communication
  • Public speaking
