Markers, crayon, pencils, and paper are all you need as we get to know each other and embark on our art-making journey!

CMA’s award-winning inclusive art classes are back! Led by Early Childhood Arts Specialist Tom Burnett, these classes provide a free opportunity for children with Autism spectrum disorders to participate in a variety of tactile art-making experiences. Classes are specifically designed to help children develop social skills, creative problem-solving strategies, and self-expression through art, music, and storytelling. The program’s supportive environment also strengthens family ties and builds a sense of community for families affected by Autism spectrum disorders.

Due to the interactive (and fun!) nature of the class, class size is extremely limited. Please make every effort to attend the class if you reserve a ticket. If you can no longer attend the class, please cancel your ticket, which will allow another family to attend. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation, and happy creating!

What to Expect:

From Our Families:

“CMA opened the door for us to visit other museums. Museums helped my son become the amazing person he is, and helped me to help him, and other people with disabilities to experience and be part of museums.”

“​Being able to participate in art activities is educational and fantastic for my daughter’s creativity. The activities are wonderful, the workshops are fantastic, and the Teaching Artists are amazing folks.”

Please Note:

This class may be recorded for educational and promotional purposes. If you do not wish to have your image or name on screen, please join with audio only and rename yourself using the Zoom rename options.
