Bella Program for students with specific needs
Look, touch, listen and create in the Bella Program. Explore exhibitions, develop new skills and have fun in this FREE art-making workshop for young people with specific needs, including physical, intellectual, emotional or behavioural disabilities.
Discover the multi-sensory Bella Room, where artist Emily Floyd has created The Garden, a highly tactile environment inspired by nature, with multiple sculptural elements to interact with. Create responses, construct narratives and explore different ways of communicating through art.
Led by specially trained MCA Artist Educators, each program includes gallery exploration and discussion, visiting the interactive Bella Room, and hands-on art making activities.
Bella is FREE for all participants and can be tailored to individual requirements. The MCA’s pioneering Bella Program is now available all year long, offered every Monday during school term or at other times by special appointment. Advance bookings are essential.
