Autism Creates is a free family program that takes place the second Saturday of every month at 10 a.m.!
This art education initiative is designed for children and families with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and other differences and features gallery visits and creative art making activities that promote self-expression and communication.
While children with ASD and other differences can 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.
Please only register once per family. If you cannot make it to the event, please cancel your registration to open the spot up to another family.
