This program helps caregivers and young children discover art together in the Museum. Listen to a story and then explore line, shape, color, and other elements of art with teaching artist Margaret Freedman. Margaret has a Master’s degree in Elementary Education and teaches at the Noah Webster House, here at the New Britain Museum of American Art, and in pre-K through 8th grade classrooms of the Waterbury School District. She combines literacy with various artistic media and develops innovative programs that enhance the young child’s experience here at the Museum.
