New Documentary about Art and Autism
"I'm an Artist"
I’m an Artist is a film about students with disabilities at special-needs schools who achieve confidence, positive reinforcement and hope through an art program. In this documentary, young adults with Down syndrome, autism and behavior issues collaborate with a dedicated teacher to create artwork for their first professional gallery exhibition. As the students draw, color and paint, we witness how these children, who often struggle in life every day, gain confidence and self-acceptance through artistic expression. The documentary also follows the children to events such as field day and graduation, providing a rare inside view of life at a special-needs school. At the heart of the film is Mary Jo, a woman who never stops teaching her students that there are no mistakes in art. With unwavering enthusiasm and support, she demonstrates that children with learning disabilities can achieve more growth than most people believe possible.
