Children experience 'Art Adventures' at Norman museum
NORMAN — Children ages 3 to 5 can do hands-on art projects and read books or hear stories about art at “Art Adventures,” a weekly program offered by the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art.
Children accompanied by an adult are invited to the sessions at 10:30 a.m. Tuesdays in the Dee Dee and Jon R. Stuart Classroom at the museum. Admission to the museum is free on Tuesdays.
“We always have lots of kids participating. They really seem to enjoy it,” museum spokesman Michael Bendure said.
Children can experience art through books or by creating art with the help of a parent, grandparent or other supervising adult, Bendure said.
“It's just a fun thing to do,” Bendure said.
Art Adventures is made possible by a grant from the Kimball Foundation, Bendure said. The program is free, and registration is not required.
