Exploring Artism: A Program for Families with Children on the Autism Spectrum

This is a free program for families with children who are five to twelve years of age and on the autism spectrum. Participants look at artwork in the galleries and create a follow-up project in a museum classroom. While the needs of individuals with autism are prioritized, it is also fun for parents, siblings, and other relatives too! Preregistration is required.

This program is conducted by the Education department of the Yale Center for British Art in consultation with the Yale Child Study Center and is recommended by the Autism Parents Community (APC).


Please preregister by emailing or calling +1 203 432 7192 with your contact information.

Masks required for participants age 2 and older. Up-to-date COVID vaccination required for museum visitors age 5 and older.

Parking is free.
