picture my world
looking at autism through art

The Queensway Centre specialises in the care and education of children with Autism. An important element of the centres work is the development of creativity and self-expression through the arts.

Artist, Jeff Pigott worked with KS2 pupils building model boats based on the paintings of the Cornish fisherman and painter, Alfred Wallis. The boats were then photographed against painted backgrounds and produced as digital prints.

Other elements of Picture My World focused on screen-printing sessions and making stained glass frames with coloured acetate. The culmination was an exhibition and talk by guest speaker, Marc Fleisher, author of Making Sense of the Unfeasible – My Life Journey with Asperger Syndrome.

Picture My World was supported by Friends of the Queensway Centre for Children with Autism, Melksham.
