Online Program That Brings Children’s Books and Art to Life

On June 8, from 10:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (ET), children can join educators from the National Gallery of Art and the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art for an enjoyable hands-on Art Tales Live: Online Storytime program. Children will engage in an interactive storytime featuring Simms Taback’s Joseph Had a Little Overcoat, look closely at Mary Lee Randolph’s original work of art Blocks and Strips from the National Gallery’s collection, and explore at-home materials for creating their own wearable art. The program is a special collaboration between the National Gallery of Art and the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. Registration is required, and an adult needs to attend the session alongside the child(ren). Capacity is limited, and all are welcome on a first-come, first-served basis.

Plus: Many museum visitors spend only a few seconds looking at a work of art. Students aged 10 to 12 can spend an hour exploring a single work of art each month, with National Gallery of Art educators and special guests who will lead a guided discussion of a masterpiece from the Gallery’s collection—all from the comfort of their classroom or home. For the virtual artful conversation on May 23 or 24, students will discover the colorful world of Anansi the spider through Caribbean stories from a rare book in the special collections of the National Gallery of Art Library. The only things students will need are their observation skills, imagination, curiosity, and creativity.
