Look and Learn with Hoot

Friday, May 19, 2017

10:30 AM – noon

Trustmark Grand Hall and BancorpSouth Classroom

Ages 5 and under

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 two books: The Rainbow Book by Kate Ohrt and A Color of His Own by Leo Lionni. These books are great examples of color recognition as expressed through pattern and story telling. In the studio, students will create colorful paintings inspired by the books, with stamps and tempera paint. Sponsored by Children’s Medical Group, P.A. Cost: Free to the public. Questions? Contact William R. Hollingsworth Fellow Adam Farcus afarcus@msmuseumart.org.
