A Mentoring Program for Advanced Young Artists on the Autism Spectrum

 




This new, 9 session program is based on the fact that many young people on the autism spectrum have a strong visual orientation. Expressing themselves in pictures, making original art becomes an important part of their communication, surpassing copying and imitation. The SeeMyVoice program is designed for them. In collaboration with the Lake Eustis Museum of Art (LEMA) in Eustis FL, accomplished artists and art educators assist in developing young, but already advanced talent toward growing and expanding. SeeMyVoice focuses on the QUALITY of expression. (In contrast to traditional art programs, which provide from playful experience to technical and material aspects and even address the application for future job choices).

This program is designed for young artists on the autism spectrum between age 8 and 22 who are registered with the CARD - the Center for Autism and related Disabilities at UCF. (We are happy to assist with a referral of interrested persons with an autism diagnosis to UCF-CARD). To find out if your young artist will be a good match for the program: please read over attached criteria and if you think it is, return the ‘ Interest Form’ along with photos or copies of artwork – in hardcopy or electronically. We will answer in detail. Interest list closing: August 1, 2017.
