Sensory Sunday Studio: The Art of Play with Anna Muniz

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, Transformed: Objects Reimagined by American Artists, families will create unique free standing sculptures using flat objects to create three dimensional artworks.

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.
