Workshops for primary school-aged children with autism around the spring season exhibitions at Garage

DESCRIPTION

Garage runs a series of free weekly workshops around the exhibitions The Other Trans-Atlantic and Dolphin in the Fountain for primary-school children with autism.

Each workshop has been designed by Garage’s Inclusive Programs Department especially for the needs of children with autism. Visiting the Museum in several stages allows for gradual and accurate immersion in the new environment. The opening class will be devoted to exploration of the new space and introduction to the Museum. During the next three sessions, Inclusive Programs Department tutors and guides will speak about the kinetic and op art of Latin American and Eastern European countries, as well as the practice of the artist Andro Wekua.

At the start of all classes, teachers work out visual schedule together with the group—that will help each participant to structure the upcoming workshop for them. Interactive games and masterclasses will then allow the children to better comprehend new material.

A few days prior to the visit, the group coordinator will receive a social story to prepare for the next session.

Organized school groups of children aged over 8 years are welcome to take part in the workshops.

Participation is free for children with a disability with a relevant ID, and one carer.
