Tuesday, November 14, 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM ET Building Creative Confidence: Experience Accessible Programming for All
Location: Kentucky Science Center, 727 W Main St, Louisville
In this interactive workshop at the Kentucky Science Center, participants will have the opportunity to learn about and practice accessible programming happening across Museum fields and participate in example sessions and classes created for groups with various abilities and needs. The Taubman Museum of Art received a three-year grant from IMLS to launch its Happy HeARTs program, built to serve individuals with varied physical, intellectual and emotional abilities through therapeutic art processes. This programming provides opportunities for sensory-friendly interactions with exhibits as well as purposeful play and artistic expression with the goals of supporting participants in learning new skills.
