FACING THE SPECTRUM

A Collection of Self-portraits from the League School of Greater Boston

Exhibition: March 2 – 17, 2017

Student Celebration: Saturday March 4th, 2017 from 4 – 5pm

 

This is the League School’s first public art exhibition. The League School of Greater Boston in Walpole, MA educates students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and they face numerous challenges every day of their lives in school, at home and out in their community. Arts Education is a strong resource and creative outlet that is especially important for those individuals who have difficulty communicating verbally or with processing language and social situations in a different manner.  Visual Arts allow us all the rare gift of communication through a truly universal language that connects us as human beings.  When students are engaged in a self-portrait, regardless of the media, we ask them to not only look at themselves, but to literally face the spectrum as they either gaze into a mirror, or use a printed ‘selfie’ to draw themselves.  Self-portraiture promotes reflection, which leads to an understanding of and acting upon self-awareness, confidence and introspection.  These abstract concepts are no easy feat for the neurotypical student to delve into, but can present an even deeper disconnect or uncomfortable scenario for the student with ASD. The League School is extremely proud of our artists and will continue to foster each individual voice through a strong arts education program.
