Little Art Adventures is a 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.

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

August Topic: "Shapes and Space"
Inspiration comes from a work of art by Cuban artist Lolo Soldevilla. Listen to the storybook The Greedy Triangle by Marilyn Burns, and discover how shapes are found everywhere! For the art project, explore how artists use shapes in drawings. Families are invited into the gallery for a brief looking activity led by an educator in front of the work of art studied.
