Art + Autism = Artasm? Beyond Puzzle Pieces

3 Oct

This is definitely one of those events that makes me wish that I was back on my feet physically and financially so I could truck kid and me up to NYC.

ARS SPECTRA is four days of exploring “The Artistic Autistic”. Each day features art, discussions, workshops exploring four different “spectra” – visual, spiritual, performance, and advocacy.

Of course, all four areas are near and dear to my heart, as an adult with autism(Asperger’s), raising a child with autism (also Asperger’s) and as an artist.  I may not be a performer (I am more of a behind the scenes sort of a gal) but I do think many of us navigating the world of the neurotypical (or more neurotypical friendly than autism friendly/aware) are, in some ways, always on stage, always trying to remember our lines, always trying to be open to those little moments of magic where we are either able to be ourselves and use our improv skills or we have mastered the script enough to be accepted and are allowed the respect and space to show our true selves.

So cool.

Anyway, click here for more information, schedule, and tickets.

p.s.  The photo is not a part of ARS Spectra.  I just put it in this post because I don’t like posting without a photo.  It is by an artist with autism (me).

Wrapped Canvas Groupon! Woohoo!

16 Oct

I know, I know… This is a short one. Really.  I know I say that in almost every post and email and then I get typing and the time just *poof*.  Huh?  What time is it?  How long was I… Oh! Hello!

Anyway.  I bought my first “groupon” a couple of months ago and redeemed it on Friday and kicked myself for not having bought more than just the two that I did.  It was for a 16 x 20″ wrapped thick canvas print from CanvasOnDemand.com for $45 and that includes shipping!  (the retail value was somewhere around $120)

I was thrilled to see that they are offering it again on Groupon! They are perfect for gifts for the upcoming holidays or if you want to customize your walls with your own fantastic art.

Here’s one of the photos that I am having done… It’s a nice shot of color that just makes me want to do stuff (so I also have it as my background on my desktop)…

Anyway, head on over… The Groupon opportunity ends on Sunday night.  Definitely one that should not be missed.

Here’s the link again:  Groupon.com
