Art offers confidence to young people with autism

Creating art began as a hobby for Ari and his mother Cheryl Colton, but it’s become not only a means of self-expression for the autistic boy, but now also has the makings of a non-profit organization.

By offering workshops for teenagers and young adults diagnosed with autism, Ari-Art has become a place where artists with autism work on directed and independent projects in a variety of disciplines from jewellery making, to photography, to creating decorative bowls and spoons.
