Art-making resource to support autistic children

NGV Kids and the Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre have created a free art-making resource designed to introduce autistic children to art-making activities.

NGV Kids and the Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre, La Trobe University have collaborated to create a free art-making resource designed to introduce autistic children to art-making activities.

Previous art-making experience is not required, and it’s suitable to be used by children aged 5 to 12 years with the support of a parent, teacher, or guardian.

With a supporting guide for parents or teachers, the resource includes two art-making activities that can be adapted to a child’s individual interests or sensory profiles, taking inspiration from Harp, 2019 by Tammy Kanat in the NGV Collection.
