Create! Art for Autism 2014 is an art competition open to all young people aged 11-25 years who are formally diagnosed with an Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) including Asperger’s Syndrome. The competition aims to dispel the myth that people with autism cannot be creative and to show that art can significantly improve their quality of life, facilitating experiential-based learning and instilling life-long skills.
Ian Bruin and Dominic Hemphill- Whyte, who both attend Project Ability’s Create Programme, reached the final of the competition and the winners were announced on 18th July at an Awards Day in Wales. Ian Bruin’s film ‘How do you get a poor penny off the road’ received a Highly Commended Award in the Animation category – Congratulations Ian! A list of all of the winners can be found on Create Art for Autism’s website, as well as photographs of the Awards Day.
Congratulations to both Ian and Dominic !
