As Autism Awareness Month is approaching, the Homestead Senior Highschool B.R.I.D.G.E.S. Program has been exploring their creative side. They visited Painting with a Twist in The Falls for one of their Community Based Instruction trips. Students, Teachers, HDS Foundation Staff and HSH Best Buddies crew arrived bright and early to work on their own renditions of a colorful night sky. As everyone created their own version of a colorful night sky, students were able to practice their social skills with their peers along with independence skills as they followed directions. Once the class finished painting, they all showed off their masterpiece to one another. It was interesting to see everyone’s renditions of the same piece!

Before heading back to school, students were able to enjoy burgers and shakes from Shake Shack. We look forward to having events like this one in the future because this allows students to explore different interest and hobbies together. Stay tuned for our next adventure!
