Tagged in: Kids, Weekend

On selected days, the DMA will be open early for children with autism and their families to enjoy art together in a fun environment. Participants can participate in staff-led gallery experiences and art-making activities in the studio.

Families may enjoy an interactive performance with a music therapist, relax in our sensory room facilitated by occupational therapy students from Texas Woman’s University, and kids over age 12 can take a gallery tour just for them — all before public hours.

Families will have the opportunity to explore the interactives in the Center for Creative Connections during this special private event, from 9-11am, and are also invited to stay when the museum opens at 11am to enjoy additional family programming.
