Autistry Newsletter – January 14, 2015

Posted By on January 14, 2015

2015 has opened with a bang at Autistry! Lots of new faces: students and staff. New projects are starting and older projects are being completed. We are all overcoming the temptation to linger in projects that we love so we don’t have to strike out into the unknown territory of a new project. So the motto for 2015 is Done is Good!

Here are just a few of the wonderful things being created (and finished) in the workshops:

Brook and Josh w/train

Josh finished the Amtrak F40. He has mastered the art of decals.

Nat and his hat

Alex painted a Lego still life for Play-Well TEKnologies (aka the Lego Store).
