Create! Art for Autism: View finalist work in London
Back in April 2011 we were pleased to share an exciting competition Create! Art for Autism; a National Art competition for young people with an autistic spectrum condition (ASC). The aim of the competition was to challenge the myth that young people with ASC cannot be creative or imaginative.
The competition closed in June 2011 with over 350 entries received; from talented young people as far a field as India and Croatia: an entire raft of original art ranging across the three categories of 2D art, 3D art and digital media. From short films, ceramics, collages and sculptures to watercolours, charcoals, photographs and textiles.
Beechwood College has seen how engaging in art and creativity programmes can transform the lives of its students and hopes to bring this message to a wider audience. The Unicorn Theatre will be exhibiting the finalists’ artwork in the John Lyon Room from Saturday 15th – Friday 21st October 2011. Free entry 9am-5pm For more information please visit http://www.beechwoodcollege.co.uk/create-art-for-autism
