Newsletter class is starting and we are discussing LIVE BLOGGING. We are going to walk around SEEDs and write about what we see….
At SEEDs for Autism, our ongoing series of workshops provide new opportunities to empower our participants and encourage them to GROW. These talented young adults gain confidence interacting with the community as they assist our staff during these educational and inspirational events!
At SEEDs, participants learn by DOING, so Camille and Jeff created their own Vision Boards in preparation for this workshop. By experiencing the process themselves, Jeff and Camille became familiar with the different techniques and understood how each step led to the next. Through this experience, they gained confidence and looked forward to sharing their knowledge with the community. Jeff and Camille SHINED as they utilized their social skills – welcoming guests, using their words to encourage others and providing instruction to the workshop attendees.
“Jeff and Camille were very helpful and professional. This was a very organized event and I had a great time making my vision board!”
— Richard Bledsoe (Workshop attendee)
The event was a great success! Congratulations to Jeff and Camille on a job well done!
Workshop attendees and their beautiful Vision Boards!

This month, Camille and Jeff will help guide you through the process of creating your own mixed media vision board!
Hi, My name is Camille and I am going to tell you about my experience making a vision board. I painted my canvas aqua colored. While the paint was drying I looked through magazines for pictures. I cut out pictures of animals, pop culture, travel, flowers, autism, Disney, Sedona, and other things. I also cut out words like Power and Good News. I glued them onto the canvas by using Mod Podge glue. I had fun making my vision board.
Please come to SEEDS for Autism and make your own vision board.
What is a Vision Board? A vision board is a collage representing things you would like to attract to your life and focus on for the New Year. Enjoy exploring a variety of mixed media techniques to create your own one of a kind canvas. You can incorporate inspirational phrases, include your own photos and utilize an assortment of art supplies and decorative elements which will be provided for the event. An artistic way to visualize your goals for 2018!

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.’
― C.S. Lewis

It sounds pretty amazing,
and it is…
But it’s so much more than that.
Truly, SEEDs is a life-changing program.
I have watched shyness turn into confidence.
I have seen meltdowns fade as coping skills develop.
I have seen distraction evolve into focus..
but, perhaps best of all –
I have seen these wonderful people find friends.
