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 has taught at the Noah Webster House, the Wadsworth Athenaeum, 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. Please Note: Saturday morning Art Start classes with Miss Margaret will return in September.
