Itty-Bitty Art: Music

Young Toddler Program

Bring your young toddler (ages 12–24 months) to the Carter for an art-filled experience! Engage with Lauren Davis, early childhood music teacher, as she leads a developmentally appropriate session that includes music-making activities inspired by the museum’s collection.

Please bring a small blanket for your toddler, and be sure to wear comfortable clothing.
