Repetition Brings Calm, Beautiful Artwork

News By State Human Interest News California Autism News

May 23, 2016- "Repetition Brings Calm, Beautiful Artwork"- 12-year-old Nolan Cooley was diagnosed with autism at age 2, and since age 6 has been creating works of art through repetition. Through a business partnership, Nolan’s dad, Dom, teamed up with 9Five Eyewear to combine Nolan’s two passions: art and skateboarding. The 9FIVE x Nolan Cooley skateboard deck was recently developed and put on sale, with proceeds going to the Skating with kids through Acceptance, Therapy, and Education (A.Skate) Foundation. The first two runs of his limited-edition skate deck sold out immediately, bringing in $5,000 in just a few hours.
