The SAAAC Autism Centre is proud to announce the launch of a series of visual arts programs adpated to support and enhance the artistic skills of children and youth on the autism spectrum. Through artistic exploration and specialized skill development, our artists will work towards creating unique and original artwork.

Program Highlights:

  • Develop and reinforce fundamental painting skills: colour mixing, brush techniques and blending
