About Anderson Center for Autism Expressive Outcomes Program
In 2004, Anderson Center for Autism established Expressive Outcomes, a program to engage Anderson adult clients in the arts. The program provides adult artists with opportunities to experiment in visual, spoken, and performing arts. Visual art exhibits take place throughout the year. At these exhibits, artists discuss their inspiration, techniques, and ideas surrounding their art. Artists are encouraged to explore new creative realms based on their interests and goals, and are assisted in displaying their work in community galleries and other venues.
About The Art Projects And Expressive Opportunities
Projects are expressive and playful in nature, demonstrating the artists’ enjoyment working in different media, textures, and with each other on collaborative projects. Over time, artists have developed more sophisticated pieces while continuing to collaborate. Distinct artists have emerged, independently creating unique artwork. Some of the artists have been motivated by their success to enter their works in outside exhibits.
Expressive Outcomes offers new opportunities for artists to express themselves and develop new skills, including music, movement, and theater. This program connects the artists with other artists, arts organizations, and the broader community, widening our individuals’ network and bringing new opportunities to our adults. For more information go to AndersonCenterforAutism.org or follow the artists on Facebook, at www.Facebook.com/ExpressiveOutcomes.
The Howland Public Library is located at 313 Main St., Beacon, NY 12508. The Community Room Exhibit Space is open during regular library hours. Please note, the gallery may not be accessible during some library programs. Please consult the library calendar at beaconlibrary.org.
