Celebrate the artistic accomplishments of students from MOCA’s educational outreach program Rainbow Artists: Art and Autism across the Spectrum during National Autism Awareness Month. While children with Autism Spectrum Disorders struggle with verbal communication, social relations, and sensory development, creative art-making activities enable them to foster new means of self-expression and communication. Created in 2007, the program has been nationally recognized by museum associations and health care providers alike. This year’s exhibition features students from Alden Road and Palm Avenue ESE Centers; Englewood, Atlantic Coast, and Nathan B. Forest high schools; Lakeshore and Kernan middle schools; and the North Florida School of Special Education.

Rainbow Artists dropped colored inks into water tanks, and then took photographs of the ink swirls to create this beautiful image.
