All sessions are developed and instructed by Plains Art Museum Education Staff and Special Education professionals for families with children on the Autism Spectrum Disorder. Art & Autism is sponsored in part by Red River Area Learning Center, Moorhead, Minnesota, through support from The Barry Foundation; and Kiwanis Club of Fargo.
For every Art + Autism, participants explore artworks through hands-on art activities in one exhibition space, have a snack and create their own work of art to take home. Parents/caregivers may request an orientation prior to the event – contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule.
