Little Artist program taught by Katherine Tolve • FREE
Thursday, October 17 • 11am-12:30pm. By creating a self-portrait, children learn who they are, how they want to present themselves and what’s important to them. Drawing a self-portrait is also excellent for teaching children that these personal ideas aren’t the same as what everyone thinks. Using the current show’s backdrop for discussion and inspiration little artist will enjoy story time and a craft that explores self-identity participants will develop, and will create their own masterpiece. All ages welcome!
