Join the Kimbell Art Museum (kimbellart.org) for a bilingual story time that introduces young minds to the magic of storytelling and the different ways that art inspires us. Virtual Pictures and Pages/Fotos y Libros explores connections with featured children’s books and artworks from the Kimbell’s collection, with warm-up activities and related art projects.
Presented in both English and Spanish by Kimbell educator Asami Robledo-Allen Yamamoto, this fun and interactive series promotes creativity, listening skills and language development. Sessions are broadcast on Facebook Live on select Tuesdays each month; no reservations required.
Virtual Pictures and Pages/Fotos y Libros is supported by the Nuestro Kimbell committee, which advises and helps shape the Kimbell's ongoing efforts to foster meaningful, inclusive and accessible museum experiences for all.
