Everyone should have an opportunity to experience the arts.
CSMA’s Artistic Intelligence program is held in partnership with the Morgan Autism Center, AbilityPath and the Mountain View Los Altos School District. Students participate in weekly classes in music, art and dance.
Weekly classes are taught by CSMA’s professional faculty. Lessons are designed to provide hands-on arts experiences in a supportive, encouraging environment. End-of-semester art shows and musical performances celebrate the students’ achievements and provide a sense of belonging and a welcomed place in CSMA’s community of artists and musicians.
One of my favorite things in class was painting a picture of trees on canvas, with the bushes, sky, water and snow. Lisette painted the picture in front of the class, doing each step at a time and we followed her. For example, she painted the yellow sunset and we did the same. All of them looked a little different because we are all different!
Experience the power of the arts and how it can inspire people to discover their passions and become fully engaged in the world around them.
