Description

Tuesday, February 19

Meet at the Carter for an art-filled experience. Itty-Bitty Art programs are offered on the third Saturday of every month. Reservations required and registration for these programs opens February 1.

Play at 2:30–3:30pm for toddlers 12–24 months: Engage with Audrey Rowland, early childhood specialist, as she leads an age-appropriate play session inspired by the Carter’s collection. In this session, examine what types of play young toddlers enjoy, what types of materials extend play and curiosity, and the impact of play on brain development. You will also explore materials that are more valuable for play than typical toys.

Creative movement at 2:30–3:30pm for babies up to 11 months: Engage with Sarah Newton as she leads an age-appropriate creative movement session inspired by the museum’s collection. Creative movement is an inclusive movement experience that utilizes the body to express an emotion, explore an idea, or discover new movement potential. In this session, you will move with your baby, discovering the joy and possibilities of movement in relationship to the elements of art.

Early literacy at 9:30–10:30am for babies up to 11 months: Engage with Dr. James Thomas, early literacy consultant, who will demonstrate age-appropriate activities inspired by the museum’s collection. Infancy is the time to begin with an awareness of language and books. During this program you will learn songs, how to share books, sign language, and ways to exercise with your little one to encourage language development. Please bring a blanket to use during this program.

Music at 9:30–10:30am for toddlers ages 12–24 months. Engage with Lauren Davis, early childhood music teacher, as she leads a developmentally appropriate session that includes music-making activities inspired by the museum’s collection. Musical activities include creative movement, dancing, instrument play, and singing. Caregivers will learn to recognize early music behaviors such as singing and moving, as well as how to utilize music during daily rituals at home. Please bring a small blanket for your toddler, and be sure to wear comfortable clothing.
