Story Time Art for Children and Families at The Everson Museum of Art

The Everson Museum of Art invites families and children ages 5-12 to join in an afternoon of art making and fairy-tales on May 1, from noon – 1 p.m. Free to attend, Story Time Art will kick off at noon in the Museum’s lower level Art Zone, a space made specifically for children.

Children will be invited to make their own art using a variety of fun, creative materials as they listen to fairy-tale favorites being read aloud. The afternoon event is inspired by the whimsical artwork of Maxfield Parrish, whose artwork will be on display at the Museum from April 29 through July 11.

“Parrish’s artwork is fun and fantastical and can truly be appreciated by all ages,” said Everson Curator of Education and Public Programming, Pam McLaughlin. “We have created Story Time Art as a way to both engage children in art and literature, as well as encourage the creativity and imagination exemplified by Parrish’s work.”

Although there is no advance registration, seating will be limited and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
