API is proud to sponsor this season’s Art Academy for Autism, an arts education initiative designed for children on the autism spectrum by the Pensacola Museum of Art. The program, for ages 5-13, focuses on nurturing artistic development and abstract thinking skills within a group environment. The PMA’s art educators believe that artistic self-expression can help students build personal connections, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and learn a wide variety of artistic skills.
Classes began Feb. 11 and will run through July.
