Art&Seek Jr: Get Inspired At These Arts-Related Events 12

A few weeks ago we talked about the dreaded “Summer Slide” and how parents can combat the effects of endless hours of Netflix and video games with science-related activities. This week, we’re highlighting events that will help the kiddos flex their creative muscles and 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.

      I know I’ve said it before, but 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.

          If your pint-sized Picasso is wanting to take their art-making skills up a notch, give one of these art camps a whirl.
