Shadow Shape-Up

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

Art makes you move! When children look thoughtfully at art, they develop self-expression and early reading skills, but not only with their eyes. Responding to the basic elements of art such as color, line, shape and space involves a whole-body approach to seeing. In collaboration with The Movement Project, works of art come alive with dramatic interpretation through movement. A kinesthetic art-making experience follows. Please dress for stretching and inventiveness. 

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