Be part of the Art! Start by exploring our autism arts website, ArtismToday.com
The Art of Autism is universal. For so many of our kids, art is that first inspiration that lures them out, into a world of fulfilling social interactions, through their exceptional, autism-enhanced ability to connect to others through art. That’s why Autism Today has teamed up with author Debbie Hosseini, to create Artism: The Art of Autism, a magnificent coffee table book, packed with beautiful art by artists who happen to have autism. As you enjoy the book, Hosseini takes you on a journey into the lives of 54 artists from around the world, and how each has used art to overcome the challenges of living on the spectrum. In the process, she dispatches, one by one, with common myths about people with autism, perceptions among neurotypicals for example that people on the spectrum lack emotion, creativity, sensitivity, and empathy.
But Artism: The Art of Autism is not just a book. It’s a community! Be sure to check out our website, ArtismToday.com. Interact with Debbie Hosseini, who curates the site.
