Check out some of the featured art work this week. Photography and editing by Yvonne Wan, Focus comic:
Focus comic features one of the worlds first autistic super heroes, art by professionals including interns with autism. We maintain dignity for autistic individuals by removing the stigma associated with autism. We also promote autistic talent by having an internship program for kids including those with autism. We promote community through our social work and free art camp.
Douglas Hebert was the Head art teacher for a large class of students in Phoenix. Yvonne Wan and Mishy Katz were also art teachers who were delighted to help the kids fulfill their creative potential.
The kids have so far been taught how to create dragons, super heroes and monsters and using clay.
Focus empowers kids to follow their dreams and see autism as a strength and not a weakness. Support #focuscomic . Support autistic individuals. Support autism awareness and acceptance.
