Calling teenagers with autism who want to develop their creativity and digital art skills.

Digital Arts for Life is a research project and workshop series for teenagers with autism aged 12-16 who want to develop their creative ideas and art skills.

The workshop program runs over ten sessions each term and places are now available for the Term 3. Workshops are held at DADAA in Fremantle on Saturday mornings from 10am – 12.30pm, starting 23 July 2022.

These fun, engaging, and supportive workshops are led by a team of specialised artists. With only 10 participants in each workshop, there are opportunities to work individually with arts mentors and explore personal interests through visual and digital arts including drawing, collage, photography, filmmaking, and animation. In addition, visits to the Art Gallery of Western Australia and John Curtin Gallery provide opportunities for participants to discover, learn about, and find inspiration in the galleries collections.

The research component of the project will help us to better understand the social, emotional, and educational benefits of arts programs for young people with autism.


 When:         Saturdays, 10am – 12.30pm
                       23 July – 24 September 2022 
Where:        DADAA, 92 Adelaide Street, Fremantle
Cost:             Free
