FORT WORTH, Texas—The Amon Carter Museum of American Art is pleased to announce the return of Storytime. This free public program for young children and their families is held every Wednesday, June 6–July 25 (except July 4), from 10:30–11:30 a.m., and brings the museum’s artworks to life through engaging children’s stories and related art activities.

Storytime this year is all about color,” says Jessica Kennedy, public programs manager. “We invite the children to explore a different color each Wednesday and encourage families to come dressed in that day’s featured color for even more fun.”

The dates and themes are: June 6–Rockin’ Red; June 13–Outrageous Orange; June 20–Hello Yellow; June 27–Going Green; July 11–True Blue; July 18–Incredible Indigo; July 25–Very, Very Violet. Twenty-one children’s books will be read during Storytime, and every child who attends has a chance to win them all in a drawing to be held after the program concludes. Each child will be entered in the drawing once per visit. Details may be found at
