Interact with works of art in the galleries, engage in a variety of hands-on experiences, and explore art processes to create works of art in the studio during this camp designed specifically for children with autism spectrum disorders. Each day will be a new art adventure as we explore different themes through gallery visits, art-making activities, sensory experiences, and the campers' own personal interests. During camp, a special guest music therapist will lead interactive musical activities to spark our imaginations and get our toes tapping! Taught by Sharon Hartman of Accessible Art and Emily Wiskera, DMA Manager of Access Programs, the camp will have additional helpers to provide one-on-one guidance. Visual picture schedules and social stories will be used to integrate art, music, social interaction, sensory exploration, and movement. Please note: Parents will receive a camper survey prior to this camp so that teachers can plan specific activities and projects that will appeal to the children's interests.
Ages: 8-15 Teachers: Sharon Hartman and Emily Wiskera
