Programs & Classes

Create, Connect, Explore

​Create, Connect, Explore is a class that offers individuals the opportunity to explore and build on their creativity utilizing various art mediums. Inspiration will be offered and gained from considering historic works by past artists. Individual creations can then be discussed with peers in a positive light of affirmation in short, informal critiques before moving on to a new style or medium. Pencil, marker, cut and torn paper are just a few of the art tools we'll be exploring our creativity with. Work alongside our instructors as they demonstrate and teach individuals throughout the entire process. Individuals will have the opportunity to showcase their hard work with an art exhibition at the Golisano Autism Center!
