|Seeds for Austism--call for artists (a FW)
||[Jan. 2nd, 2011|07:32 pm]
Hi, my name is Mary Ann LaRoche, and I am in one of Beatrices studios off of 15th Ave. In our studio, we run a nonprofit program called SEEDs For Autism. |
We are a group of artists who work together to take our talents and create products to then teach adults with autism and aspergers how to learn our skills, and fabricate the products to then sell.
Our program has had overwhelmingly great response from our participants, their families, and the public.
In January we are looking at offering more classes, and getting more students, and hoping to include other artsists/talents/skills to our agenda. We are looking for all areas of expertise, and volunteers to help us grow our program. We will also have some future paying positions, but want to begin interviewing interested parties.
Upon agreement to working with us, we will require fingerprinting, but are mainly interested in creating a fun, but are also teaching genuine job related work ethics to our adults.
If you are interested, or think you might know someone who would be interested, please forward this on.
I can be reached at my email address:
This is a great space, and opportunity for artists to not only help, but you also get to learn from other artists.
Thank you for your time,
