Spring has sprung! Come to the Museum to explore the changing season.
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.
