Our Mission

We are a non-profit, 501C3, creating colorful solutions for Dyslexia, ADHD & ADD through Therapy, Educating, Advocating, and Mentoring. We also strive to build self-esteem by focusing on one's strengths through creative expression.

Blank Canvas Awareness Art’s goal is to provide:

Tools to the dyslexic community including assisted technology.

Educate communities and teachers about dyslexia.

Advocate for awareness, proper instruction, and proper accommodations.

Mentor children and adults that need support to build their self-esteem.

We believe in helping everyone discover their strengths and reach their full potential.

We prepare your child to self-advocate, learn assisted technology, and be a proud dyslexic.

We help adult individuals learn about assisted technology that can help in the workplace.

Community Engagement

Awareness Art Show

We provide community engagement opportunities for the public to learn more about dyslexia. Some of these presentations involve a simulation, using items from the facility that is hosting. For example, if we are at a restaurant we change the menu to make it difficult to read so people can experience the difficulties a person with dyslexia experiences. This provides a more authentic experience.

We also provide education through awareness art shows. We have had adult dyslexics submit artwork from all over the world and had local art shows.
