Sensory Sunday Studio
Monoprinting with Emily Kenselaar
FREE with museum admission and for members, with advance registration required.
Join us on the first Sunday of the month for a special hour of Sunday Studio designed for families with members on the autism spectrum or who have other sensory sensitivities. Drop in to Geyer studio between noon and 1 p.m. for an art-making activity inspired by our current exhibitions. Each month features a different project designed by MAM Teaching Artists that is accessible to artists of all ages and abilities. This program is a great fit for people who learn best in smaller groups in a controlled environment with extra support.
Inspired by the exhibition, Century: 100 Years of Black Art at MAM, families will use a “subtractive” monoprinting technique using printing tools like plexiglass and ink to create unique monoprints!
How is Sensory Sunday Studio different?
- This art-making hour is limited to ten participants at a time, much fewer than our regular Sunday Studio program, and we have additional arts educators and studio assistants on hand.
- We offer fidgets and noise-canceling headphones that can be borrowed upon request.
- Low-sensory zones are available for quiet breaks.
- Families that pre-register will be emailed a pre-visit Social Story and further information.
