Art Now for Autism

I wanted to share this, the brainchild of a fellow autism mom.

Art Now for Autism
October 1 – 31, 2008

– Claudine Intner, founder and organizer of Art Now for Autism

I thought that this was such a great way to fundraise. I am the happy owner of two lovely pieces of original art:

Artist: Puzzle Art Plus Yahoo Group – Angie Boesch, Cathy Hudson, Theresa Pillow, Halle Gustafson, Gay Ens, Heather Raycraft, Linda French, and Jam Ito. From: United States, Great Britain, Canada, and Japan

“Waiting to Dance” • Artist: Hunter Ian McBride — Hunter is an artist with PDD-NOS. He is 9 years old and has been drawing since he was able to pick up a pen. His first works were drawn all over the walls! If left to his own devices, he would draw morning, moon, and night. He captures the world around him in a different light. While his expressive speech is poor, just give him a pen and it unlocks the door. He is fascinated with detail and movement, nature and sounds. Hunter is a creative boy to have around!

Indeed. Check it out, pieces are going pretty fast.
