The North Carolina Museum of Art

What's in the Box?: Parts of Art

Thursday, March 27 | 11 am
Thursdays, 10:30 am, 11 am, and 11:30 am
East Building, Studios 1 and 2
Free for members; $3 Nonmembers
Sign up that day; first come, first served.

Come to the Museum to explore a part of art. What will be in the box this week? Lines, shapes, colors, textures, or patterns?

Preschoolers, ages 2–5, and their caregivers discover a new adventure in the box each time and experience fun and engaging ways of looking at art together in the Museum and at home. Each session introduces a work of art from the Museum through one of six themes: animals, people, places, seasons/nature, movement, and parts of art.

Activities stretch the imagination while children explore materials and make personal connections with art and their world. Everyone can collect “What’s in the Box?” cards (provided at each session or downloadable here; cards also in Spanish).
