February 5, 2013 – Autism Arts at the AGNS in Yarmouth

Autism Arts is a new program being offered at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia’s Yarmouth branch. It is for young people diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. The 8-week sessions are modeled after a program developed at the AGNS through funding from the Craig Foundation, which have been offered in Halifax since 2006.
