The Museum welcomes children ages 2-5 and their parent/guardian for an explorative, 90-minute-long workshop. A BMoA instructor presents a variety of theme-based art projects that promote creativity and fine motor skills using mediums such as painting, drawing, collage and printmaking. Parents/Guardians and their child explore each project at their own pace and work together to create a collection of one-of-a-kind artworks to take home.

Monet and Me

Iconic French Impressionist artist Claude Monet, always carried a sketchbook while exploring landscapes and the world around him. With BMoA educator Natalia Perez and your encouragement, your child will create their very own sketchbook inspired by Monet, using media such as watercolor, oil pastels, professional grade colored pencils, and more!

“Side by Side is my favorite thing I do at the Museum because I get to set up a colorful space where young minds can explore various types of art materials, touch new textures, and develop their fine motor skills with the encouragement and support of a loved one right next to them! It is incredible to see just how creative children can be if you provide them with the tools they need to create.” 

- Natalia Perez, BMoA Educator
