The Tavon Center program fosters a sense of purpose and belonging in young adults with disabilities through gardening, community involvement, and skills that can be transferred to an employment setting.

Seattle Children’s Alyssa Burnett Adult Life Center offers classes and activities for adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities as they transition out of the education system and into adulthood. The Burnett Adult Life Center hosts year-round classes and activities for adults age 18 or older that promote lifelong learning and independence, enhance quality of life and provide meaningful ways to take part in the community. lifelong learning opportunities for young adults with autism and other developmental disabilities.

The Northwest Art Center was originally founded in 2004 by two local artists, Susan Jenkins and Dianne Brudnicki, who shared a passion for art and wanted to provide a space for area residents to take art classes, buy art supplies, and view artwork. Dianne later left the business to start a new venture while Susan stayed on to see the art center into it’s next chapter.

In 2008, as the economy began to falter and family budgets became constrained, Susan realized that the only way to continue to provide quality visual art education to the community was to become a non-profit organization. In April 2009, the Northwest Art Center officially became a 501(c)(3) charitable organization (EIN #27-0242357).

Since becoming a nonprofit, we have been able to provide the opportunity for hundreds of area children, youth, and adults to benefit from art education and engage hundreds more in the arts through our community outreach efforts. This would not be possible without the generous support of area individuals, businesses, local governments, and foundations.

Mission Statement
