This educational opportunity for children up to five years of age and their parents emphasizes creative play and literacy through a hands-on art activity and story time. (Hoot, a friendly owl, is the Museum’s education mascot.) Please dress for mess! This month we will be reading Tar Beach by artist Faith Ringgold. This book is an example of imaginative and magical writing as well as a great introduction Ringgold’s visual work. In the studio, students will create personal stars, in water-based paint, inspired by Faith Ringgold’s story. Sponsored by Children’s Medical Group, P.A. Cost: Free to the public. Questions?
