July 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
While children with ASD struggle with verbal communication, social relations, and sensory development, creative art-making activities enable them to foster new means of self-expression and communication. Utilizing two educational components—hands-on art workshops and the museum galleries —the Autism Creates 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. Created in 2007, this innovative program, previously called Rainbow Artists and Art Aviators, and its results have been nationally recognized by museum associations and healthcare providers alike.
Monthly workshops are hosted on-site at MOCA Jacksonville for up to 10 children with ASD and their families. Families will explore the galleries, create art, and participate in sensory activities. Join us the second Saturday of each month from 10-11 A.M.
There is no cost to attend but space is limited and registration is required. Please only register once per family. If you can not make it to the event, please cancel your registration to open the spot up to another family. Thank you.
