Digital Art and Technology Access Summer 2024

July 15 @ 9:00 amJuly 26 @ 1:00 pm EDT


DATA is a media arts and technology program designed for neurodivergent individuals (such as individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, etc.) ages 13-19. A series of year-round workshops builds creative and social skills. Students learn a range of media-based practices to suit all interests in technology and art.

In DATA we provide a minimum 3:1 student-to-instructor ratio, noise-canceling headphones, snacks or lunch, and a separate sensory-friendly space outside the classroom for breaks. The lead Teaching Artists have experience in working with students with disabilities. The Teaching Assistant has a degree in social work and experience working with students with disabilities, and can help you begin the process of applying for services through the New York State Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD). Our Peer Mentor is a neurodivergent student or recent graduate from a digital media art degree program.

DATA is tuition free and space is limited.

This summer we are thrilled to have media artist and educator Jenson Leonard as our instructor! We will use a range of digital tools for drawing, animation, and photo editing to create gifs, memes, animations, websites, and more. Students will have the option of incorporating projects they are already working on, or starting with fresh ideas. 


Scroll down to “tickets” to apply.  If this is your first time applying to DATA, you will receive a phone call from Caroline, our Education Director, to discuss the program in greater detail, and to ensure that we are a good fit for each other. We unfortunately aren’t able to support individuals with high one-on-one needs.

Questions? Please email, or call 716-884-7172.


DATA is made possible by the generous support of The Children’s Guild Foundation.
