Event Details

On October 26, 2017, from 4:30–7:00 PM, the Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science will host the Kaleidoscope, an Arts and Autism Program, reception at the Evansville Museum Transportation Center (EMTRAC). The Kaleidoscope project provided art experiences for children on the Autism Spectrum. Throughout six workshops, children created works of art that are on display at the reception, accompanied with a presentation by Mark Osteen, “Grow Your Brain!: Art on the Autism Spectrum.”

In partnership with St. Vincent’s Center for Children and the Culver Family Learning Center with major funding by Mother Bear Foundation, the Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science conducted, Kaleidoscope, an Arts and Autism Program this fall. Across the nation the Arts and Autism programs have proven to be therapeutic for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. It provides a way for them to express themselves when communication is difficult. Many children with ASD develop repetitive body movements that stimulate sensory receptors and have insufficiencies with fine motor skills. The art projects can be a soothing activity and provide an outlet to learn new things.

This past fall the preschool students of the Culver Family Learning Center with special needs participated in Kaleidoscope at the Evansville Museum. They have unfettered access to experience different art projects as artists demonstrated how to do the activity and then each child participated at their own pace, skill level and attention span. In addition to creating artwork individually, the children were offered an opportunity to work together on a piece of artwork and practice their social skills. The resulting artwork will be exhibited at the Museum and then at St. Vincent’s Campus for their “Art and Science of Autism Spectrum” Conference on Friday, October 27, 2017.
