In October, join local artist Presley Martin in the Art Lab to learn about frottage: a drawing technique made by rubbing crayon over found objects. Experiment with a wide variety of items collected by the artist himself to create your one-of-a-kind frottage. Then visit the galleries to talk with a Walker educator about art that was created from everyday objects.
Sensory Friendly Sunday is a monthly event designed for kids, teens, and adults with sensory processing differences, autism spectrum disorder, or developmental disabilities. The galleries will be closed to the general public, allowing visitors to enjoy the museum in a calm environment with accommodations such as quiet spaces, noise-reduction headphones, and sunglasses available. Experience the Walker’s exhibitions, participate in a new art-making activity, or watch a short film.
While walk-ins are welcome, we encourage you to reserve your space ahead of time. Registration is available below.
To prepare for your visit, check out the Social Narrative. For more information, email email@example.com or call 612-375-7610. This program was created in consultation with the Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM) and the University of Minnesota’s Occupational Therapy Program.
