Looking to Learn: Art and Storytime

FEB 28 | MAR 28 | APR 25 | MAY 30
10AM, Sundays on Zoom

Free, registration required

Children ages 3-8 and their caregivers are invited to join us each month as we look, learn, and make in response to themes from our current exhibitions. This live streamed program for families will include close-looking at artwork, reading of a storybook, and a making activity inspired by the theme. 

Looking to Learn encourages valuable social emotional skills that help children ages 3-8 build and develop greater empathy, understanding, and respect for their peers and community.

Register to attend. After registering, you'll receive a confirmation email with details about joining the event on Zoom.
