A NEW arts project has been set up to help break down barriers surrounding autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.
Weekly arts sessions are being held until August for people on the high end of the autistic spectrum as part of the Breaking Barriers - Arts in Autism Project.
Participants will examine and debate issues surrounding autism, people’s perceptions of their condition and the Autism Act.
They will use drawing, painting, photography, drama, music and sculptural techniques to explore these issues involving such materials as recycled newspaper, clay and chicken wire.
An art installation will be prepared for the forthcoming Magna Carta 1213-1215: The Journey Starts Here exhibition at the Museum of St Albans, from next Saturday, June 1, until September 15.

The sessions are being organised by St Albans Arts, Sport & Health, the development arm of Leisure Connection, on behalf of the district council along with other partner organisations.
