Tots and their guardians are treated to a tour of the collections, a team activity and a crafting session. November’s theme is “Around the World,” in which kids explore how artists take inspiration from their surroundings. In December, kids will view work from artists who incorporate fantasy and magical themes, then discover the ways in which artists combine, transform and rearrange objects and ideas in January. In February, visit the “This Place” exhibition to learn about the connections between home and expression. Kids will observe symbols of powerful figures throughout history in March, explore ways in which artists gather ideas and inspiration from their communities in April and create wearable and usable art in May. Ages 4 to 7.
