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, as well as using their imagination. 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, they receive 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 both taught on the same day. Teachers must be present for virtual lessons. Classes run 30–45 minutes on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

To register, call 215-684-7582.
