Here is a highlights film and some pictures from week 2 of our Focus Comic free summer camp for kids and young adults with autism.
Yvonne took photos of the kids sculptures in a photo booth and edited them professionally. Here are a few for your viewing:
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 summer camps. Douglas Hebert is the head art teacher for Focus comic free summer camp. Yvonne Wan and Mishy Katz are also art teachers who were delighted to help the kids fulfill their creative potential. Corinna Repucci has also recently joined us as a teaching assistant.
Over the weekend the kids had fun painting their fired dragon and super hero sculptures. 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.
Please view our Focus Comic Facebook page to more pictures. Some of the kids will complete their projects in subsequent weeks due to their availability.
