Sensory-Friendly Saturday: Art Sense

Sensory-Friendly Saturday: Art Sense

Experience and create art in new ways using your five senses! Enjoy a variety of creative activities throughout the Museum during this accessible program. Created in conjunction with occupational therapists and local families specifically for visitors on the autism spectrum or with sensory processing disorder and their families, this inclusive program strives to provide a welcoming experience through offering: 

  • Pre-visit social stories
  • Activities to meet a variety of sensory needs
  • Hands-on art activities for all developmental levels
  • Sensory break areas
  • On-hand support of skilled and friendly volunteers which include occupational therapy graduate students and faculty
  • Fidgets and noise-cancelling headphones to borrow

This program welcomes participants of all ages and their families (siblings welcome!).

Free; space is limited and registration is requested. For more information or to register, contact Laura Westmoreland at [email protected] or 610.388.8120.
