To promote reading readiness and visual literacy, preschoolers and their caregivers will explore Reynolda through activities that encourage dramatic play, music, movement, and art-making. Students will interact with a work of art or item from Reynolda’s collection for inspiration. The program takes place in the museum and outside on the grounds (we encourage you to bring a blanket). Materials are provided, however, participants may collect their own natural items. In the event of inclement weather, programs held outdoors may be moved indoors, canceled, or rescheduled. In each series, lessons will build upon one another, however, families may choose to attend single sessions.
In Series 1, we will explore Jacob Lawrence’s "Builders No. 2," Lyonel Feininger’s "Rainbow II," and portraits in Reynolda’s collection.
