7 Misconceptions on Art and Autism
Art-Is-Umm: The Way To Heal
The 7 Misconceptions on Art and Autism is the first installment in a 4-part series of webinars hosted on Artisumm.com. The webinar focuses on the findings from the documentary, Art-Is-Umm: The Way To Heal, scheduled to release during the summer of 2014. This first webinar takes place Jan. 26, 2014.
A year ago, D.S. Artistry Productions set out to prove art’s importance to the autism community. During this process, producer Derrick Small learned many insightful tips about coping and growing with Autism. These tips benefit his youngest son, Jonah Small, who scores on the autism spectrum. The purpose of the webinar is to dispel myths that autism hinders children from learning creative skills, while also providing examples of art’s ability to improve social communication.
