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.

Drawing, Painting and Mixed Media

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.

*Classes are currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This program is a collaboration with Brookline High School, but is open to students enrolled in other schools if space allows. Financial aid is available. For more information or to register, please call us at 617-566-5715 or contact

For students under 18 and over 22, we are committed to offering support in our regular schedule of classes.
