Jack, Age 11

  • Drawing
  • Markers and pencil
  • A4 portrait

Due to his autism, Jack has many anxieties, social and developmental struggles but he has found a love in art and in particular drawing. His attention and the amount of detail in his work have always astonished us! Art helps him to regulate and has proven to be incredible for his mental well-being. He draws from the heart and only what he is passionate about and this drawing is one of his latest. He joined a new special needs school in September and has overcome so much to adjust to a new environment, but it has been an incredible success. He is so happy there he had to draw it from his perspective! He put so much love and care into this drawing, he is very proud of it and the school is incredibly proud of him. We all are.
