Little Art Adventures is a 30-minute program designed for children ages 3 to 5 years old and their adult companions. The experience includes a storybook circle; creative shape and color play; the creation of a simple art project; and an "In Search of . . ." activity sheet that families can use in the galleries together. 

This program is held on selected Fridays throughout the year. To maintain a quality experience, the Museum limits the number of participants and requires preregistration.

Free with general admission. MFAH Members always receive free general admission.

January Topic: Floating Colors & Curvy Lines Inspiration comes from a painting by Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky. Listen to the storybook Art by Patrick McDonnell, and discover how painters can be inspired by the rhythms found in music as well as by repeating colors and lines. For the art project, "compose" a work of art while listening to songs and then receive an "In Search of . . ." activity for exploring the museum together as a family.
