Here is a highlights film and pictures from week 3 of our Focus Comic summer camp which is free for kids and young adults with autism.
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 was the Head art teacher for a large class of students in Phoenix. Yvonne Wan and Mishy Katz were also art teachers who were delighted to help the kids fulfill their creative potential. Corinna Repucci also assisted with the teaching.
The kids have so far been taught how to create dragons, super heroes and monsters using clay.
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.
