Summer Art Camp: Hands-on Art for Children with Autism

June 24-28, 1:00-4:00 p.m.

Ages: 7-13 on the autism spectrum
Teachers: Frances Chen and Emily Wiskera

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. Co-taught by Francis Chen, Autism Specialist, 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: Caregivers 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.
