ASP PWAy Day on July 13: Artismo: Manga + Mandala

“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” Edgar Degas 

The Autism Society Philippines Wednesday "PWAy Day" aims to provide enrichment for teens and adults with autism (16 years old and above) who are not currently enrolled in schools. ASP PWAy Days will offer opportunities to learn new skills, to socialize with non-family members and to have fun.

On July 13, Wednesday, from 2pm to 5pm, we will be conducting a session on art. PWA Paulo Guzman will teach how to draw Manga faces. PWAymates also have the option to color Mandala (adult coloring) cards.

We would like to foster independence among our participants. But if needed, a maximum of one (1) companion per PWA will be allowed in the training room.

"Adults with autism who are no longer in school end up in the fringes of society." Mona Magno-Veluz, ASP National President shares, "ASP is deeply invested in building a society where a individuals with autism be the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive and socially-accepted members of the community -- no matter where they are on the spectrum. By keeping PWAs active and engaged outside the home, we are also training the society to be more aware of what autism is, to be more appreciative of their gifts and to be more accommodating of their deficits."
