Art of Autism

It was such an honour  and a priviledge to attend the art of autism exhibition and enjoy the very colourful, creative  and amazing artwork of children in our local area.

“Many of the children grew in confidence during the art exhibition process and one child who had so many anxieties and would not talk actually began to speak. The mental health benefits of both creating the piece and having the piece valued in a community exhibition are huge.” – Mandy Garford Chair of the NAS Dartford & Gravesham

I was very inspired by the creativity of the young artists
