Description: 

This is a free program for families with children on the autism spectrum who are five to twelve years of age. Participants spend time in the galleries responding to artworks with interactive materials, followed by creating something of their own in a classroom. All family members are encouraged to participate. For those needing some quiet time, there is a classroom outfitted with objects such as games, sensory toys, weighted blankets, and noise-cancelling headphones.

Exploring Artism is free, but preregistration is required. Please email ycba.education@yale.edu or call 203 432 2858 with your name, number, and a good time to reach you. A museum educator will contact you by phone to answer any questions and confirm your registration.
