What’s in the Box?

Spend the morning at the Museum with our beloved program for preschoolers! Meet a work of art, enjoy movement and play, and get your creative juices flowing with these sessions for 3- to 5-year-olds and their caregivers.

Adults and children take a visit to the Museum galleries and create unique works of art in our studios as we make connections through stories, art making, movement activities, and gallery play.

What happens when you make art from lots of different parts? Find out when we make sculptures from everyday materials, inspired by Louise Nevelson’s sculpture Black Zag CC.
