Yale Museum Helping Autistic Kids Appreciate Art ‘Artism’ At Center For British Art In New Haven

Taking a child to an art museum can be a challenge. That challenge is magnified if the child is on the autism spectrum. Read more here.

YCBA’s program, “Exploring Artism,” starts a new round of events on Saturday, Sept. 21. The 90-minute Saturday-morning sessions are free and open to all children ages 5 to 12 years on the autism spectrum and their family members. They are held once a month.

“EXPLORING ARTISM” will be held at Yale Center for British Art, 1080 Chapel St. in New Haven, on Saturday, Sept. 21, Saturday, Oct. 19, and Saturday, Nov. 16, all at 10:30 a.m. to noon. Admission is free but space is limited so reservations are required. Each child must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. To reserve, contact the YCBA Education Department or call 203-432-2858.
