This program helps caregivers and young children discover art 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 with a Masters degree in Elementary Education. Throughout the year, she teaches at the Noah Webster House, the New Britain Museum of American Art, and the Waterbury School District. She combines literacy with various artistic media, and develops innovative programs that enhance the child’s experience here at the Museum.
