Artistic Autistic

Joel Smith, Wesley John-Smith and Victoria Noel
4th – 8th December 2013

Artistic Autistic is an exhibition celebrating and sharing the work of three young autistic students who attend Drumbeat School. They are all very passionate about making art in their chosen medium.

Joel, who is 13, makes models mostly from re-cycled materials. He gets his ideas from watching TV, playing games and using his imagination. He likes to play with the models when he has made them.

Victoria, 14, does photography as an everyday thing and takes a camera where ever she can, photographing herself, friends, family and anything she finds interesting. Editing her images is currently her favourite pastime.

Wesley, 13 years of age, draws because it makes him feel free. He likes detail and precision. Trains and designscapes are his main interest.
