Arts Programming 

As an outlet for creativity, self-expression, and connection, the arts are an essential part of our work. We provide exciting opportunities for neurodiverse artists to develop their skills and build their professional platforms.

Art offers an accessible and meaningful avenue to connect with the world. Through our annual summer art camp, year-round workshops, and ongoing outreach, we uplift neurodiverse artists and connect them with the resources, classes, and professional networks they need to thrive. Our programs are primarily geared towards neurodiverse artists age 12 and over looking to connect with a wider community of peers, creative professionals and hobbyists.

Future Camp

Our annual two-week summer arts camp hosts neurodiverse and neurotypical learners ages 12 and up for a series of classes including writing, visual arts, animation, music, and more. In addition to classes led by teaching artists, Future Camp wraps with a celebration called “Future Fest” which features local arts programming vendors, college resource booths, and more.

July 24 - August 4, 2023

“I was blown away by the amount of thoughtful planning and organization that went into camp. My son was able to access all classes, activities, and information and felt confident navigating on his own.” - Future Camp parent

Throughout the year, we offer interactive arts workshops to help artists in the Evolve network boost their confidence and develop their professional and artistic skills. We also partner with local galleries and venues to provide neurodiverse artists with the opportunity to show and sell their work publicly.
