A+ ART Program

 

Description:

A+ ART is a free, Museum-based arts program that serves teens and young adults with ASD and with other special needs. The curriculum for A+ ART follows a unique theme every week and includes but is not limited to: looking and discussing original artworks in the galleries, sketching, related art-making, group discussion, icebreaker questions and games, and group share time/celebrations at the end of every class.

A+ ART meets on Mondays from 3:00 to 5:00pm during the school year (scheduled to begin on September 26, 2022) in the Museum’s galleries and art studios. In addition, the VBMA will offer multiple half-day A+ ART workshops during winter break, spring break, and over the summer. Finally, a family and friends celebration will be held at the end of the school year and at the close of workshops.

Program Goals:

The belief that art can enrich all lives and is integral to developing new ways of thinking and problem-solving guides our program. Inspired by close-looking and discussions about artworks in the galleries, and using a variety of technology and materials in our studios, students will express and explore their creativity. Social interaction time will help to instill confidence as well as reduce isolationism.

Schedule:

Class takes place every Monday from 3:00 to 5:00pm at the Vero Beach Museum of Art. Seasonal A+ ART workshops will be announced throughout the year.

A+ ART follows the School District of Indian River County’s calendar. Class will not be held on the following dates: October 31, November 21, December 26, January 2, January 16, January 30, February 20, March 20.
