The Art Garden Programs
ACN is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization. All of our retail arts, crafts, and home and garden décor is sold at reasonable prices, with 100% of the profits split among the artists. That means when you purchase any of our art goods and specialty crafts, you automatically become a direct financial supporter of the artists! We are incredibly economical when it comes to amassing our art supplies, as we acquire materials largely through donations and encourage our staff and artists to “go green” and recycle or upcycle all of the craft supplies used in our business.
The Art Garden is an innovative adult pre-vocational skills training program for adults with autism and developmental disabilities who are over 21 years of age. The Autism Center of Nebraska, Inc. (ACN) showcases The Art Garden as an “artists collective,” with all of our individuals serving as both artists and business professionals of this distinctive art goods retail store.
We believe that The Art Garden is a welcoming place for individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities to thrive creatively and professionally, while enjoying opportunities for growing relationships.
