Rainbow Artists and The Art Institute of Jacksonville Rainbow Artists and The Art Institute of Jacksonville

The Art Institute of Jacksonville, a branch of Miami International University of Art & Design, worked in collaboration with the Rainbow Artists program at the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville.

Rainbow Artists is an educational initiative designed exclusively for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The Rainbow Artists program harnesses art and art-making activities as means of promoting expression and social interaction among children with ASD and their teachers, caregivers, and peers.

Students from Academic Coordinator for Design, Logan Zawacki’s Studio Lighting and Digital Illustration courses, were provided the opportunity to collaborate with the Rainbow Artists in two unique ways:

  1. Studio Lighting students created portraits of the children and helped the Rainbow Artists program by documenting the various art projects created on October 31, 2014.
  2. Digital Illustration students were then challenged to create unique vector illustrations of the children using only circles or triangles. The photographs taken by the Studio Lighting class were used as the reference for the illustrations.

On November 21, 2014, the Rainbow Artists were given the illustrations and had a wonderful time painting and coloring their unique portraits.
