This Program Is Giving Artists on the Spectrum a Chance to Create and Exhibit Their Work!

The National Autistic Society (NAS) in the UK was founded in 1962, and since then it has worked toward providing support, education, and training for people with autism in order to give them the ability to live independent and empowered lives.

One of NAS’s programs is called Artrack, and it provides special training and studio facilities to established and emerging artists on the autism spectrum.

“Art benefits people with autism,” says Artrack’s art coordinator Darrell Hawkins. “It allows them to express themselves, and create something they can be proud of.”

The studio is set up to support adults on the autism spectrum — by helping them create works of art, and also by setting up exhibitions to display their work.
