Autism Art Exhibition at Wayfarers Arcade Inspired by the Greats

VISITORS to The Wayfarers Arcade will see how autistic pupils at Southport's Peterhouse School have been inspired by great artists as the shopping centre plays host to the School's annual art exhibition. The exhibition features work by pupils on the autism spectrum who have been studying the styles of painters such as Piet Mondrain, Vincent Van Gogh and Edward Munch and used these as starting points to explore texture, form, colour and perspective.

A wide range of artwork, in different styles and media, all created by young people at Peterhouse is on display at this special showcase which also aims to raise awareness and understanding in the community about autism and highlight the strengths and potential of autistic people.  Peterhouse School and College has been rated as:- 'Outstanding' by OFSTED for over 10 years and supports autistic children and young people from 5 to 19 years of age.


Janet Allan, Headteacher at Peterhouse said:- "We are delighted that Wayfarers Arcade is yet again showing its support for autism by helping us to raise awareness locally through this exhibition. Each child at Peterhouse is uniquely affected by autism, and we tailor the way we work to ensure that we support each and every 1 of them to achieve their own goals and potential."
