Day 12 Down syndrome awareness month

Josie is a 17 year old girl from Sydney who has recently been discovered as a burgeoning Artist! Josie has Down Syndrome but this does not define her…Josie finished Year 10 last year and now studies a vocational skills certificate at TAFE. We found an art course at a local art gallery at the beginning of the year for her to attend to “fill up some hours”. Josie had only ever drawn stick figures prior to attending the gallery. The tutor gave her landscapes to draw and the revelation began. It has been an amazing discovery and I hope you enjoy keeping up with her weekly masterpieces !! ……..¬†Everyone really is a product of their environment – Fortunately, Josie has finally found a fantastic one !
