Autism Art-In Registration for Zoom Sunday, April 19, 2-3pm
~Zoom Virtual Meetup for Autistic Youth up to age 17~
Only supplies you need: paper and pencil, or whatever you have handy at home
Please have guardian, caregiver, or homecare worker complete the registration if you need assistance.
1) WHO ARE WE?
Manta ‘Milya is family of artists– Manta J, autistic teen artist (visual, music, video) and his mom, Mela K, aka Pamela K. Santos, conceptual artist and writer.
2) WHAT IS THIS?
Mela K holds space for Manta J and autistic youth artists to make their own art at the same time, in a creatively open and comfortable environment. Think of it as coworking with art. Work independently in a community.
3) HOW DOES IT WORK?
a- Everyone can make art! Doodle shapes, repeat letters across a page, make a self-portrait, draw your hand!
b- We all can do our own thing! The meetup is not an art lesson, guided project, or autism discussion group.
c- Mela K answers questions from participants and facilitates communication for Manta J only when needed.
Consider modeling Manta ‘Milya communication and let autistic youth “speak” for themselves in the way they can (for example, chat for typing or AAC devices).
d- DON’T BE MEAN. We know what mean feels like. BE COOL.
e- Shyness is welcome! Sharing art is optional.
f- HAVE FUN!
4) NEED TO SET UP PRIVACY ON ZOOM PROFILE?
Check option below for technical assistance from Mela K in setting up your Zoom profile for privacy IN ADVANCE. DON’T LOG IN UNTIL SETTING UP.
5) MINI-ORIENTATION AT 1:45PM:
Not quite sure how to get around? After profile set up, log into Zoom meeting room 15 minutes before.
Mela K will walk you through screen and what you see.
6) WHY EMAILS?
You can edit answers in your submission. That’s why we need email addresses for contact info.
Survey may be sent after event for feedback and improvements.
We promise your email will not be sold to advertisers or for any spam lists.
If a newsletter is created in the future, you will be asked before being added.

Free! Donations for facilitator encouraged
