The Kimbell Art Museum’s ongoing children’s program “Pictures and Pages” continues on Tuesday, February 1, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Designed for children ages four to six, this Free in Fort Worth program features a reading of Kevin Henkes’s acclaimed storybook Kitten’s First Full Moon, which received the 2005 Caldecott Medal, followed by an engaging docent-led tour and a related art activity.
“Pictures and Pages” encourages children through Fort Worth Kids Events to use their imagination, contribute to group conversations, and participate in simple art activities. Each session lasts approximately 45 minutes and is designed to inspire creativity and provide children with an early exposure to works of art. The program is free, but registration is required.
Early registration is recommended, as space is limited. Maximum of two children per adult. To register, please call 817-332-8451, ext. 297.
