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 in these sessions for 3- to 5-year-olds and their caregivers. Adults and children visit the Museum galleries and then create unique works of art in our studios as we make connections through stories, art making, movement activities, and gallery play.
In this session learn more about the bright and powerful women in Mickalene Thomas’s Three Graces: Les Trois Femmes Noires. Then celebrate yourself by creating a sparkling self-portrait!
