Event description

Description

Families are invited to take part in an evening of exploring the arts!

This event is open to child with ASD 8+ to 10 year olds and their siblings within the same age range.

Children should be able to:

  • take direction and follow through
  • willingness to interact
  • sit for at least 45 minutes

There are two components to this program:

Tour/Activity May 7th: they will be doing a number of games/exercises incorporating theatrical techniques. Here are some examples of possibilities:

  • Scavenger Hunt: Using photos of portions of the artworks, participants will find the artwork.
  • Touch and Find: Using a basket of objects with different textures, participants will be asked to find the artwork that reminds them of the texture.
  • When The Wind Blows: The tour guide invites participants to move from different artworks with specific instructions. i.e. When the Wind Blows, move if there’s red in the artwork. When the Wind Blows, move if the artwork is made of wood. Etc.

Workshop May 14th: the sessions, we’ll be making sensory collages using an “I, We, Me” process. We’ll be doing some cutting but mostly arranging and pasting. “I” (Thunder Bay Art Gallery Staff) will make a collage to show to the group. “We” will make a collage together. For “Me” , participants will make a collage on their own.

Date: May 7th and May 14th
