Our Natural World - FRAME project

Ice and its colours and sensations

DMA activity

Emily Wiskera, Manager of Access Programs at the Dallas Museum of Art, invites you to discover a landscape painting depicting icebergs. Let your senses carry you into this great work of art, and then create a painting with coloured ice cubes.

This activity is specially designed for people on the autism spectrum but is suitable for all audiences. Adult assistance is suggested.

Note: Preparing the materials the day before is recommended, as it takes time for the ice cubes to set.
