This program helps caregivers and young children discover art together in the Museum galleries. Listen to a story and then explore line, shape, color, and other elements of art with Museum educators.

Teaching artist Margaret Freedman leads Art Start. Ms. Freedman has a Masters degree in Elementary Education and teaches at the Noah Webster House, here at the New Britain Museum of American Art, and in the Waterbury School District, pre-K through 8th grade. She combines literacy with various artistic media and develops innovative programs that enhance the child’s experience here at the Museum.
