New Family Program! Stories in Art in ASL
Stories in Art introduces children (ages 4 to 7) to art through careful looking, storytelling, and hands-on experimentation. Led by museum educators, each program includes reading a children’s book, exploring one work of art in the galleries, and completing a simple, hands-on activity. Each program is approximately 60 minutes. Click here for more information about the Stories in Art program.
