The Coral Springs Museum of Art is recognized as a community anchor developing programming to meet the needs of our community. In South Florida, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 68 children are on the autism spectrum and the Museum recognizes the enormous toll and stress families incur in living with autistic children. As a result, the Museum has implemented Kaleidoscope ArtReach, an art program designed exclusively for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs).
The Museum offers art classes onsite at the Museum, for children ages 5 to 12 years old.
The Museum has implemented the program in collaboration with the Dan Marino Foundation and a neighboring school, Parkside Elementary where children with autism receive specialized instruction as well as opportunities to be mainstreamed into typical classrooms.
