Our Art Program offers art works created by people who have autism spectrum disorders. We participate in local events offering for sale cards, prints and a wide variety of original art produced by people with autism. We create income for the artists and lets everyone know who they are. The show has appeared at the Oregon Developmental Disabilities In-Service in Salem, the Hilyard Community Center, The Unitarian-Universalist Church, Lane Community College, Territorial Vineyards, DIVA, the Jazz Station, Passion Flower Gifts, New Zone Gallery, Maude Kerns Art Center and more. We celebrate our artists with a gala opening, giving neuro-normal people a chance to rub elbows with some notable autists, and autists palpable proof of their self-worth and a market for their art.
Our expenses include materials to produces the prints, frames and display equipment for our permanent collection, and general funds to lsupport our outreach effort for new artists. And art classes are on the drawing board.

The support group, conceived for people with high-functioning autism and Aspergers, has been meeting monthly for years. Cheryl Nel Applegate, a retired professional in the developmental disabilities field, is the facilitator. There are about 8 hard-core regulars and new arrivals often join; they range from 19 to 50 years old. They share stories and discuss different challenges posed by living with autism spectrum disorders. It's a safe place.
KindTree pays rental on the meeting space plus notices mailed out every month. We also host a party once a year. Fun!
