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 the last Friday of selected months throughout the year. To maintain a quality experience, the museum limits the number of participants and requires preregistration.
At the October program, inspiration comes from a French family portrait. Guests listen to storybooks, including Are You My Mother? by P. D. Eastman, and use interactive, hands-on circle activities to discover how artists tell stories about people in portraits. For the art project, families create their own life-size portraits, and visitors can also explore art in the museum with an "In Search of ..." activity.
Program is free with admission. Please remember to confirm your registration in the Beck Building lobby before heading to the Museum Visitors Center for the program.
