Itty-Bitty Art: Little Artists

Program for families with toddlers 12–24 months

Bring your young toddler (ages 12–24 months) to the Amon Carter for an art-filled experience! Engage with Lindsay Koss, early childhood teacher, as she leads an art-making session inspired by the museum’s collection.

Artistic exploration can begin with the tiniest of hands. The introduction of artistic mediums allows toddlers to discover action, colors, textures, and to express themselves. Crayons, foam sheets, markers, paper, stamps, texture boards and watercolors are a few toddler friendly supplies that stimulate creativity while developing fine motor skills and encourages cognitive development. Making art combines a sensory and emotional experience that fosters a passion for creative thinking and imagination!

Attendees may get messy—please dress accordingly!

Reservations are required. Registration for this program opens August 1.
