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.
What Is This Place?
The inspiration for today's program is a landscape (outdoor scene). Listen to storybooks, including Stella: Fairy of the Forest by Mary-Louise Gay, and then "jump" into the work of art with the help of materials that you can touch, taste, smell, hear, and see. Create your own picture of an outdoor place and receive an "In Search of ..." activity you can use in the museum to explore art together as a family.
Free with general museum admission. MFAH Members always receive free general admission. On the day of the event, please be sure to confirm your registration in the Beck Building lobby before heading to the museum's Visitors Center for the program.
