Art&Seek Jr: Get Artsy With These Creative Summer Events 11

Remember at the beginning of the summer how you said you were going to expose the kids to more art? Museums, gallery openings, film festivals–it was all part of your grand plan to make the littles more appreciative (and more aware) of all the great art out there. Fast forward 8 weeks, summer is winding down, and the closest the kids have come to art is chalk and the sidewalk out in front of the house. Not to worry. There’s still time to get in a heapin’ helpin’ of art enrichment before school starts. Here are just a few events from the Art&Seek calendar to help the kiddos get in touch with their artistic side this summer.

If it’s enrichment and different you want, you don’t have to look farther than our area museums. I know, I know, the idea of dragging an unwilling child around a gallery or museum seems less than appealing to more than a few parents out there. Well, let me put your mind at ease. The world-class museums we’re lucky enough to have in our neck of the woods literally have something for everyone–and that includes the tinies. Far from being boring, they’ll make an art-lover out of your kiddo. Take a gander at these activities happening this week at your friendly, neighborhood museum.

      Your local library is a great place to seek out small adventures close to home. Not only do they have all the books, magazines and DVDs you could ever want, they also have tons of programs for kids of all ages, Here are a couple of the many events to check out this week at area libraries.

          Believe it or not, there’s still time to squeeze in one more camp before summer is over. If your pint-sized Picasso is wanting to take their art-making skills up a notch, give one of these art camps a whirl.
