Autistry Newsletter – December 28, 2010

| December 28, 2010

2010 has been a year of change and growth at Autistry Studios. We moved into a huge and wonderful new studio- 37 Duffy Place in San Rafael. We added 3 more workshops (and another will likely begin soon!). Our membership has doubled. We have new staff, new volunteers and many new families. And there is much more fun ahead in 2011!

We just listed the Core Workshops for Jan-May 2011 and you can find the list here: Spring Workshop Schedule. Click on the workshop titles for more information.

Meet the Challenge! The Miranda Lux Foundation has put up a $7,500 Challenge Grant to support our Core Workshop Program. This is a matching grant which means that they will match dollar for dollar all funds we raise up to $7,500. So, your end-of-the-year donation will count double! Please help us meet this challenge.

Autistry Graphics: We are close to reaching our fundraising goal to launch our first small business enterprise – Autistry Graphics. This new venture will offer training, internships, employment and job placement support for our Autistry Studios members. If you would like to support our efforts to create jobs please email Janet ( for more information.


Tuesday March 1st we will have an Open House and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to celebrate our move to San Rafael. Invitations will go out the first week of January.

Saturday March 5th will be the first Autistry Studios Winter Carnival. We are forming event committees now so please email Janet if can you lend a hand creating this unique event.

Looking forward to a great new year!

The Autistry Studios Team
