Art and Autism

In collaboration with Brookline High School and the Autism Higher Education Foundation (AHEF), the BAC created a program which provides a semester-long art class for young adults ages 18-22 with autism and related disabilities. We offer students a creative outlet to encourage and develop their interests, communication and skills.


Introduction to Drawing and Painting

Fall Session: Tuesdays, September 26-December 5 from 12:00-2:00pm


This class is for students new to drawing and painting and for those with more experience. The class introduces drawing and painting and allows students to strengthen their skills. Students explore different drawing materials, techniques and vocabulary. The class is designed to allow each student to progress and practice at their own pace with curriculum designed for each student's unique learning style.


Drawing, Painting and Mixed Media

Fall Session: Thursdays, September 28-December 14 (No class November 23) from 12:00-2:00pm


This class allows students to explore various mediums including drawing, painting and collage. Student progression is based on their individual interests and experience exploring art. Skill building follows each student’s learning style and works to support long term enjoyment of art. Teachers foster independent exploration and work to build knowledge of the many components of creating meaningful artwork.



Tuition is $275 (scholarships are available). Each class is limited to 5 students. This program is a collaboration with Brookline High School, but is open to students enrolled in other schools if space allows.
