National Autism Awareness Day Saturday, April 2, 1-3pm

April is National Autism Awareness Month and we’re standing up and speaking out for the thousands of children affected. Autism is a lifelong developmental disability with no single known cause in which children have difficulty communicating and interacting with other people. Join us as we partner with A World of Miracles, a homeschool based organization that teaches children with this unique disability. We are celebrating and raising awareness about the issues within the autism community. LilyRoze Studios is performing a stage play for the event and community organizations are on hand to share expertise and resources. Come help us celebrate as we create symbolic candles to place on the wall of hope in honor of children with autism. It's a day with music, sensory crafts and fun for all! Included with museum admission 3

"That's a Wrap" - Special Events at CMOM! In January, it was a royal treat as guests visited with Cinderella and Prince Charming at the Fairy Tale Tea! Children dined on fine pastries and sipped tea and apple juice while guests of honor danced and met with visitors. It was Saturday in the Studio in February at CMOM! Artist Kate Bradley stopped in to teach visitors a little bit about portraits. Children and parents were able to create their very own self-portrait to take home! Black History Month was celebrated all month long at CMOM. Students performed selections from poems by African American writers and the Mandekalou African Drummers treated guests to a moving musical performance. 5 5
