ART FOR AUTISM

Persons on the autism spectrum are strong visual learners, they can be brilliant at expressing themselves visually through art and illustrations. They can be fixated "experts" on specific topics such as dinosaurs, ships or trains. Or, they can be highly detailed in producing line art of architecture and patterns.


In this Social Space Cafe Hop, you will learn about how The Art Faculty empowers individuals with autism to lead meaningful and impactful lives. You will also get to create an artwork of your own.
