    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    Click and Connect by Scottish Autism is an extension of the successful Winter Connections project. The project allows the autistic community and their families in Scotland to stay connected through the pandemic and beyond.

    The Click and Connect groups aim to reduce feelings of loneliness & isolation by providing an opportunity to connect with others online. Registration is taken for each session independently, make sure you register for each session of the groups you want to join before they fill up! The groups take place weekly.

    Current groups:

    • Virtual Art Group
    • Virtual Choir Group
    • Mindful Autism Support Group

    More information.

    The Art Group is open to autistic people and their families and aims to bring people together for creative expression in an informal and safe environment. It offers the chance for a mindful break from the day’s worries and can help to reduce stress. 

    The Art Group will be led by a talented Support Worker, Gabriele Gikyte, who has an academic background in art and experience of running a Virtual Art Group in their services in Lothian. Each hour and a half session will explore an artistic medium and an abstract theme which can act as guidance to start off the creative process.

    Attendees will be encouraged to view the theme through their own personal lens, brainstorming ideas and searching for ways to best depict their vision. Gabriele will share knowledge and tips on how to work with the different mediums and materials. The materials to use are for guidance only and the attendees can always work in their preferred medium and explore it in their own way.

    Register for the Online Art Group on Wednesday 05 May 2021, 17:00 - 18:30.
