Itty-Bitty Art: Sign Language

Infant Program

Bring your baby (up to 11 months) to the Amon Carter for an art-filled experience! Engage with A. J. Bowman-Shelton, founder and facilitator of Baby Sign-and-Speak, as she leads an age-appropriate sign language session inspired by the Amon Carter’s collection.

Learn fundamental signs and insights that will help facilitate a stronger bond between you and your little one. By using colors, shapes, and sculptures, start a conversation and discover that communicating with babies is not as abstract as you may have thought!

Registration for this program opens July 1. Call 817.989.5013 or email education@cartermuseum.org to register. When registering, indicate that you are interested in Itty-Bitty Art: Sign Language.

Itty-Bitty Art programs are offered on the third Saturday of every month.
