Parents, guardians, and caregivers can often find it daunting to bring very young children into quiet spaces such as a museum and yet from the moment they are born babies begin to take in the world around them including the sights, sounds, smells, and feels. As early as in the first few months of a baby's life he or she is drawn to certain colors and contrasts and can follow the path of objects.
This exciting new 30 mintue tour opportuntiy, led by Assistant Curator of Education Jessica DiPalma offers adults the opportunity to learn about works of art while young children will be able to simultaneously engage with works of art, absorbing the colors, shapes, and tonal contrasts of works on view in the museum. The tour will also provide ideas on how to engage children with works of art.
