The Art Gallery of Windsor and Autism Ontario Windsor-Essex have teamed up to launch Art to Heart, a series of virtual art workshops designed to provide youth on the Autism spectrum aged 12 and up with free art kits and arts facilitation, community engagement, and a creative spark to light up these times of distancing.
Youth and families connected to Autism Ontario’s Windsor-Essex chapter can sign up to join artists April Morris and Alyssa Pisciotto on select Tuesdays over Zoom from 6-7pm EST and discover intriguing new textures, engage in the art of playing with art, and use inner creativity to create to the heart’s content – whatever that means to each person!
Any questions about Art to Heart can be directed to the AGW’s Audience Engagement Coordinator, Abbey Lee Hallett, at email@example.com. To get involved with Autism Ontario's Windsor-Essex chapter, contact Chapter and Programs Coordinator, Livia Congi, at Livia.Windsor@autismontario.com.
Art to Heart is generously funded by The Solcz Family Foundation. The Solcz Family Foundation is committed to improving the welfare of the Windsor-Essex community, and in particular, focuses on supporting projects and programs in social services that provide opportunities for children and youth.
