Art Babies: Features & Creatures

Monday, May 12, 10:00 a.m.

Art Babies is just for children 0-24 months old and their caregivers. Join us for a thirty minute private tour of the Museum's collection, designed with wiggly, drooling, cooing babies in mind! In May, we've added one additional class at 10:00 am for those babies who nap midday.

When classes are filled, please e-mail lhanson@DMA.org to be placed on the waiting list.

In April - June, we'll learn about what types of art appeal to babies and search the American galleries for portraits and paintings of animals.
