Fantastic Landscapes: Virtual Art Show & Sale

Join us for a celebration of creativity and adaptation!

You’re invited to the Centre for Autism Services Alberta’s Annual Art Show and Sale in partnership with the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts

It goes without saying: this summer is very different from most we’ve all experienced. With everyone taking precautions, staying home and remaining physically distant to keep each other safe, this virtual show will transport viewers to Fantastic Landscapes.

The Centre for Autism Services Alberta’s visual art programs for children, teens, and young adults allow aspiring artists with autism spectrum disorder to bring their ideas to life through a variety of media. Led by instructors from the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts, our artists develop skills in drawing, painting and ceramics, and explore digital media and animation.

After 15 years of partnership, the Centre’s community art programs with the Nina have grown exponentially. Hundreds of children, teens and young adults with autism have participated in these programs over the years and their value has proven to be unparalleled. Not only do the art programs help foster creativity and encourage experimentation in different art mediums, they support children, teens and young adults in developing social skills in a group setting, build independence and provide opportunities for community integration.
