Event Description


Art Aviators is an educational initiative designed for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and other exceptionalities.While children with ASD struggle with verbal communication, social relations, and sensory development, creative art-making activities enable them to foster new means of self-expression and communication. Utilizing three educational components—art studio, galleries, and MOCA Jacksonville’s Art Explorium—the Art Aviators program harnesses art and art-making activities as means of promoting expression and social interaction among children with ASD and their teachers, caregivers, and peers. Created in 2007, this innovative program, previously called Rainbow Artists, and its results have been nationally recognized by museum associations and health care providers alike.Support for Art Aviators programs is made in part by the Winfield A. Gartner Memorial Fund for Children’s Programs and Baptist Health.
