Most recently, Morgan has found the perfect community setting for him to share his experience gained by providing support, education, and promoting inclusion in the lives of young people. Morgan has found a home, and the next chapter in his diverse career path at Simply Jane Studios in South Minneapolis. Jane’s open art studio provides inclusive, therapeutic open-art services to a diverse range of people, including many individuals with a range of disabilities. Upon meeting Morgan and learning about his experiences working one-on-one with individuals with autism and other forms of disability, an immediate connection was made, and Jane quickly carved out a customized paid position for Morgan. As a studio assistant, Morgan guides customers through the process of making a painting “pop” and to ensure that the flow of the studio runs smoothly for each artist.
