The NAS Greenwich Art Group offer art activities to support peer relationships using art therapy techniques for autistic young people, now expanded to those aged 14-17.

This group will be facilitated by an HCPC registered art therapist currently working in Greenwich schools, together with a NAS volunteer with 20 years experience who is a qualified teacher. Both have DBS.

The group takes place on the second Tuesday of the month at Gerald Moore Gallery, Eltham College.

Get together; relax, be creative. Parents: Come and chat in a relaxed environment with other parents.
