Art Alert! Excellent Opportunity for Special-Needs Kids

9 Nov

The Dallas Museum of Art hosts its third Autism Awareness Day Celebration on Saturday, Nov. 20 from 9-11 a.m.  The event takes place in the DMA’s Center for Creative Connections.  Young Picassos their parents will make art projects, explore different textures in the Young Learners Gallery and create a masterpiece in the Art Studio.

I attended the first event of its kind in the spring and was blown away.  It’s a lovely opportunity for special-needs kids to enjoy an outing with their folks.  Because the Celebration begins before the museum opens, it feels private, too—a plus for parents who fret about how their children with autism behave in a new setting.  Families may tour the rest of the galleries after 11 a.m. so you can make a day of it!

Pre-registration is required due to limited space.  Email your name, phone number and a list of those in your party to ablake@dallasmuseumofart.org or call 214.922.1251.
