Itty-Bitty Art: Movement

Young Toddler Program

Art and exercise come together in this young toddler (12 to 24 months) program! Explore movement 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.

Itty-Bitty Art: Little Artists

Young Toddler Program

Artistic exploration can begin with the tiniest of hands. Bring your young toddler (ages 12–24 months) to the Amon Carter for an art-filled experience! Little hands will start to make art as Lindsay Koss, early childhood teacher, leads an art-making session inspired by the museum’s collection.

This introduction to 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 encouraging 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!
