Storytime: Fast and Slow

Stories and artmaking for families with children 8 and under

Storytime is upside down and inside out at the Amon Carter as we explore opposites this summer! This week, visitors will focus on all things fast and slow when they bring their family to hear stories, look at artworks, and create their own works of art! Snacks will be provided.

During each Storytime, adults can register their participating children to win that week’s featured books. A drawing will be held after each program; those chosen will be contacted via phone or email.

Storytime is held every Wednesday, June 6 through July 25 (except on July 4), from 10:30 a.m. to noon.

This program is best for families with children ages eight and under and their adult companions. If you work for a summer school or day care, we offer a customized experience for your students on a different day. Please call 817.989.5036 or email schooltours@cartermuseum.org for more information.
