The Art on the Spectrum Workshop Series is a five week art program exploring the artistic abilities of individuals on the Spectrum. Each week's workshop will be guided by Sydney Hall highlighting a specific artist, and genre, inspiring participants to create their own individual works of art which will be showcased and sold at our Annual Gala.

Our Annual Gala on April 14, 2018 is an evening event celebrating the abilities of those who live with special needs - particularly those on the Autism Spectrum.  This evening will showcase the impressive bodies of work created by the workshop participants and will be displayed alongside Sydney Hall's original oil paintings.  The entire collection of work will be available for purchase with the proceeds directly benefiting the Central Coast Autism Spectrum Center.

Two optional art events will be available to attend during the workshop series.  The first, An Art Showing of workshop participants with a Book Signing by Ron Suskind author of 'Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes, and Autism'.  The second, a glass blowing demonstration by Kelly Powell, is available for an additional $15.00 fee for those who would like to watch first hand the excitement of working with hot glass straight out of the kiln.
