The 30-minute program Little Art Adventures is designed for children ages 3 to 5 and their adult companions. The experience includes a storybook circle; creative shape and color play; making a simple art project; and an "In Search of ..." activity sheet that families can use in the galleries together.
Little Art Adventures take place on selected Fridays throughout the year. To maintain a quality experience, the Museum limits the number of participants and requires preregistration. On the day of the event, please be sure to confirm your registration in the Beck Building lobby before heading to the program in the Museum's Visitors Center.
Free with general admission. Museum members always receive free general admission.
