Babyfest '17

Calling All Babies! Celebrate the joys of babyhood during the National Association for the Education of Young Children's (NAEYC) Week of the Young Child. Meet up with other babies for an engaging afternoon of color-seeking, mess-making and creative movement.

Babies at different stages have their own perspectives on art. Awaken your little one's curiosity with early learning experiences involving color, texture, light and sound while singing and bouncing to the beat in the galleries. Meet-up for a pint-sized play date and baby approved art activity in our multi-sensory studio classroom.

Free activities for all member and non-member babies. Registration required. Click on the button / link below to register.
