Itty-Bitty Art: Movement

Young Toddler Program

Bring your young toddler (12 to 24 months) to the Amon Carter for an art-filled experience! Engage with Taleisha Jones, an instructor at The Little Gym with a background in psychology and child development, as she leads an age-appropriate session that includes movement activities inspired by the museum’s collection.

This program’s curriculum is designed to help build the skills needed as children become mobile. It will focus on strengthening your child’s core to help with balance and stabilization and promoting inner ear development. While your child discovers new colors, movements, and sounds with fascination and joy, you’ll discover new smile muscles you never knew you had!

Children should be dressed in comfortable clothing (dresses are not ideal) for this program. Also, please bring a burp cloth or a blanket.

Members on the Road Waco

Let’s take a day off from city hustle and bustle and visit the historic homes of Waco, Texas. Join us as we step back in time into the houses, gardens and grounds of three historic properties in this peaceful city on the Brazos River that calls itself the heart of Texas. Built by affluent merchants and pioneer planters, these homes present distinct styles that give a broad view of mid to late-nineteenth-century art and design. We will examine paintings, architecture, furniture, and textile and costume on privately led tours of each property.

Lunch will be catered by Olive Branch Bakery & Café at McCulloch House. Fee: $150 per person includes transportation, lunch, and all tour fees and gratuities. To register for this day trip, contact Mary Lynn Sloane at 817.
