Preschool Groups

Virtual Lesson: Museum Looks and Picture Books

This program is especially for preschool groups with students ages 3–5. Children explore art through close looking, movement, and sketching activities. Each session revolves around a theme and includes a picture-book reading and prompts for extended art-making. Participating classes receive preparatory materials prior to the lesson. After the lesson, each class receives the selected picture book to become a permanent part of the school library.

Cost: $100 per class. Class size is limited to twenty students. Groups with more than twenty students must register for two virtual lessons, which can be taught on the same day. Teachers must be present for virtual lessons. Classes run for 30 minutes on Wednesday and Thursday mornings.

To register, call 215-684-7582.
