Autism & the Arts & Creative Expeditions
Autism & the Arts & Creative Expeditions are after school Museum programs that offer gallery experiences and art workshops for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. These programs are designed to inspire creativity and motivate communication in children with autism. Autism & the Arts was launched in 2007 through collaboration between NCMA and the North Shore Autism Circle.
Workshops are led by teaching artists trained in art therapy
who encourage children with autism to express themselves through
conversations around works of art in our galleries and in hands
on painting, drawing, and sculpture projects. Through innovative
exploration, children develop their own artistic style and voice
while they communicate through words, imagery, and movement.
