Family Sensory Day
August 19th, 2018
Family Sensory Day is aimed at families and individuals with low sensory needs and is part of the larger community engagement project to promote universal access to the museum. Through the use of art therapists, therapy animals, art, and movement, Family Art Day encourages integration and participation in the museum for low sensory families.
The galleries will have various art-making experiences designed by local art therapist Anne-Marie Collins, drop-in yoga with Christa Soonier from Breathe Yoga, a movement story time from our friends at West Florida Public Library,and gallery tours by PMA docents.
A Sensory Break Room will be available for those who may need it and our resident therapy dog Washaki will also be walking around and providing assistance. Family Sensory Day is open to all ages and all abilities.
Family Sensory Day is sponsored by a grant from Greater Gulf Coast Arts Festival
