For the first time, Chapel Haven hosted an Art Day on campus, giving students and community members the chance to participate in a day of creating artwork to celebrate Autism Awareness Day (April 2) on the campus of Yale.
Their creations will be displayed in Woolsey Hall at Yale University on April 2 in celebration of Autism Awareness Day.
Art Teacher Tina Menchetti said Yale graduate student Andrew Sotiriou, who has interned with Tina’s Out to Art classes, secured grant funds to help Chapel Haven purchase art supplies. Students from Yale and staff from the Yale Center for British Art were on hand Sunday to help the students with their creations. The group created paintings, drawings, collage, and sculptures.
