INCLUSIVE ART PROGRAM


We All Belong: Art and Friendship Go Hand in Hand

Wednesdays, October 3 - November 14, 4:30-6pm
No class on Wednesday, October 31

This fun, interactive and FREE art program is for adults who are learning English as a second language, refugees, immigrants and their children, as well as Museum Member adults and children. Join us at the Children's Museum of New Hampshire, a warm, inclusive community, to engage in meaningful, out-of-school arts experiences. Play, create, express yourself, share your ideas and form new friendships.

The Museum's art gallery curator and educator staff will lead participants in activities that everyone can do including painting, drawing, collage, and more. Adults will be in one classroom, while children (ages 5 and up) will be in another classroom down the hall, doing different art projects. This will leave time for kids to bond with kids, and adults to bond and relax with adults. Kids ages 5 and up only, please.

Pre-registration is appreciated and space is limited. Drop-ins welcome if space is available. Participation in this program is FREE thanks to support from the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts and a private donor.

Limited space is still available. Please contact Julia Kirchmer to see about the possibility of registering: julia@childrens-museum.org
