[PA6] All About Senses
Feb 19 or 26 (register online)
Our five senses help us discover the world. In the galleries and studios, babies can learn about their senses by playing with instruments, texture samples, and more!
[PA7] All About Color
Mar 19 or 26 (register online)
Learn why bright colors are better than pretty pastels for your baby’s eyes. Play with colored flash cards, tour the galleries to see vibrant paintings, and create a colorful art project. You’ll be amazed at your baby’s wide-eyed responses!
[PA8] Let’s Make Music
Apr 16 or 23 (register online)
Watch what happens when your baby experiments with new sounds. Stroll through the galleries to see musical instruments in art, and then return to the studio and enjoy the experience of creating a musically inspired work of your own.
[PA9] My Face, Your Face
May 14 or 21 (register online)
As babies develop, they become more communicative. View expressive portraits during your gallery tour and then in the studio, make faces with each other to express different emotions.
