Open Studio


Based in NYC, participants can be from any of the 5 New York City boroughs. Tuesday evenings we open the YAI Arts & Culture studio to people with autism and other intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) looking to develop their creative voices and expand their creative communities. We offer mentorship from working artists and opportunities to submit work for exhibition and sales. Currently, our studio sessions are held virtually on Zoom. We look forward to congregating in person again when it is safe to do so.

The work of YAI artists is in many private collections and is available for purchase through our studio site.

Check us out on Instagram @yai.arts

Artists must provide documentation of developmental or intellectual disability.
