Sensory Sunday Studio
Pride Rainbows with Emily Kenselaar
FREE with museum admission and for members, with advance registration required.
Join us each Sunday for a fun family art-making activity inspired by our current exhibitions. Explore materials, learn new techniques, and meet other community members while enjoying creative time with your family. Each week features a different project designed by MAM Teaching Artists to spark the imagination and encourage conversation in response to artworks on view in museum galleries. This program is aimed at families with children ages 5-12, but all are welcome.
Inspired by the new exhibition, vanessa german: ...please imagine all the things I cannot say..., families create mix-media assemblage rainbows from upcycled materials in honor of National LGBTQ+ Pride month.
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.
