Sensory-Friendly Saturday: Voyage Through Art & Nature

Sensory-Friendly Saturday: Voyage Through Art & Nature

Individuals on the autism spectrum or with sensory processing disorder and their families are invited to join us for early access to the Museum and a variety of creative and accessible activities. Families will have the opportunity to "journey" through the Museum and campus, discovering paintings, sculptures, and the natural world.

Created in conjunction with local families and occupational therapists, this inclusive and accessible program strives to provide a welcoming experience through offering:

  • Pre-visit social stories 

  • Reduced crowding and noise 

  • Activities to meet a variety of sensory needs 

  • Hands-on art activities for all developmental levels  

  • On-hand support of skilled and friendly volunteers 

  • Sensory regulation resources such as fidgets, noise-canceling headphones, sunglasses, and a sensory break area 

  • *Special tour for teens and adults*: Teens and adults are invited to join us at 10:30 for a short campus walk to the Monarch Migration Station with a naturalist to explore the sights, sounds, smells, and textures of this important natural area. 

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

The event is scheduled from 9:00-10:30 a.m., with two arrival timeslots to spread out the number of people in the galleries. Choose your timeslot here: 

*Timeslots are flexible and visitors may stay in the Museum past the end of the event, but special activities will end promptly at 10:30.
