Art Moves

December 21, 2017, 11:15 am – 12:30 pm

Art Moves replaces traditional sitting-and-looking exercises with engaging-and-interpreting, encouraging children to express themselves through kinesthetic experiences in the galleries.

Shake, Shine and Splatter!

Best for ages 3+ and their grown-ups (siblings welcome)

Join the movement! Children are naturally inclined (and designed) to be active learners. Whether moving during imaginary play, exploring new concepts, or responding to what one sees, the body teaches the brain to think. Art Moves replaces traditional sitting-and-looking exercises with engaging-and-interpreting, encouraging children to express themselves through kinesthetic experiences in the galleries. In collaboration with the Cleveland-based dance company, The Movement Project, a professional dance instructor and museum educator embrace a whole-body approach to focused looking and process-based art making. Please wear comfortable clothing for bending and stretching. 

Free for members. $10/non-member child. Space is limited.
Registration required. Register online using the link / button below, or call 330.376.9186.

Art Moves is made possible with support from the Robert O. and Annamae Orr Family Foundation.
