Strokes of Genius, Inc 501c - Train The Talent offers a professional art studio for individuals on the autism spectrum to create artwork! Our mission is to educate and empower individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) who have a talent in art, by promoting their artistic abilities in contrast to their disabilities.
Did you know that NOT ALL artists with autism are savants! While 50% of savants have autism - only 10% of the autistic population are actually savants. Whether the individual is a savant or not, some of our talented individuals are extremely "low functioning" while others may be "high functioning". That is why autism is considered a SPECTRUM disorder. Imagine , not being able to respond to your name, to have a conversation or even to care for yourself independently, yet....having the ability to create a masterpiece! Such talent should not go unnoticed and should be nurtured!
Strokes of Genius - Train The Talent provides educational art studio experiences and workshops to expand opportunities toward inclusion and independence for such individuals. We exhibit the artworks produced by these talented individuals and all proceeds go back to the artist.
•We strive to further expand opportunities for individuals with autism who are impaired socially, verbally, behaviorally and for those with a “love” or “obsession” in creating art by providing a vehicle for them to be able to generate income from their creativity.
•Due to the characteristic disabilities of these individuals many may be unemployable and the existing employment opportunities are also extremely limited. In addition, often times a family is overwhelmed with the care-taking of their autistic child, and opportunities to create a livelihood for their talented, yet extremely challenged child are impossible to attain.
•Strokes of Genius, Inc. seeks to empower the individual, train the talent and showcase and sell the artists works “by the artist” and “for the artist”. We need your help to expand our programming opportunities.
These artists "GIVE BACK" to society by donating their works to autism organizations for fundraising opportunities as well!
