This paper tries to answer about the anxiety of the community, especially teachers and parents who are observers of autistic children about the handling of autistic children in Indonesian public schools. Autistic child has a complex communication disorder that makes him live in his own world. It affects the socialization of autistic children with the surrounding environment, including when he went to school. The education system has evolved toward child-friendly with disabilities. The program allows children with disabilities to take classes together with children in general. Communication disorders in autism often occur in the school environment which causes the child difficult to develop his ability. Meanwhile, teachers have less exploration of learning approaches. Art offers flexibility and aspects that are close to children, one of which is fun. This paper uses art-based practice-led research as its approach. The study was a single case study of R, a 10-year-old autistic child in Yogyakarta. The results show the art shows its effectiveness as a material delivery approach. In addition, art is also present as a fun therapeutic act for autistic children to improve their thinking, memory, imagination, and communication. The results of autistic children's painting have a high artistic value because there is a qualitative leap in symbol symbols and colors that add to the beauty of the painting.
