Artistic Autistics by DIYvinci

From Jennifer Parr

I’m raising funding for the Artistic Autistic program which provides creative autistics the ability to earn from their art, provide future grants towards their business, and educational resources.

More Info

Supports for autistics often evaporate the day they turn 18. Coupled with the fact that many autistic adults are unemployed or under employed this leaves them struggling and feeling invisible. After being diagnosed autistic at age 31, DIYvinci founder, Jennifer Parr, discovered many autistics also enjoy creativity and are artists. Jennifer’s goal is to shine a light on the value of creative works of autistic adults while helping them earn an extra income.

How the Program Works

1. Artist Submits their work to DIYvinci.

2. We (DIYvinci) purchase a license to sell a specific amount of prints of the artists work. The artist retains full rights to their artwork.

3. The artwork is listed for sale on DIYvinci. The artwork is listed in our art print category under home décor. Once purchased, it is printed and shipped via a printing partner.

4. Profit goes back into the Artistic Autistic program. The sale price includes: The artists price + printing costs + 20% markup. The profit (including any donations & tips) then goes to purchasing additional artwork/licenses from artists and marketing their work.

Future Program Expansions

1. Micro Business Grants - Starting and operating a business usually comes with expenses. Our goal is to provide creative autistic business owners cash & product bundle grants to help offset some of these costs. 

2. Education & Support - Operating a successful business is an on-going learning experience. Our goal is to provide a series of courses for current and future creative autistic business owners can utilize at their own pace. Along with the course, we would also like to provide support and feedback. These options would be offered for free on our www.DIYvinci.Studio platform. 

How Will Donations be Used?

1. Purchasing print licenses directly from autistic artists. 

2. Developing in-depth and useful education and resources for creative autistic business owners and fees associated with hosting these resources.

3. Hiring autistic entrepreneur speakers to host live virtual events on DIYvinci Studio. 

4. Create cash and took kit bundle micro grants to help autistics start their own creative business.
