The North Carolina Museum of Art

What's in the Box?: Movement

Thursday, November 21 | 11:00 am
East Building, Education Studios 1 and 2
Free for members; $3 Nonmembers
Sign up that day; first come, first served.

Up, down, round and round, stomp your feet and twirl around! Let’s explore all kinds of creative movement at the Museum.

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 are designed to 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 for each session; they are also downloadable here. Cards also in Spanish.
