For Immediate Release

November 12, 2010

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA—Get preschoolers off to a good start...with art (and have a lot of fun, too). On Saturday, December 11 at 10:00 am, the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute warmly welcomes parents and their preschoolers to a Start with Art session focusing on the theme of movement.

Participants are invited to explore the Clark’s collection with a printed gallery guide designed to help parents and preschoolers look at and talk about art. Clark educators also offer age-appropriate “painting talks” that introduce families to eye-opening details in some of the museum’s best-loved works of art. The fun continues with hands-on activities focused on movement, including painting toy cars and creating art with decorative stamps.

This popular series gives parents the opportunity to spend quality time with their little ones in the Clark’s intimate galleries. In addition to this event, the Clark is also offering Start with Art events focusing on the themes of storytelling on January 8, color and shape on February 12, and faces on March 12.
This free event is best suited for three- to six-year-olds and their parents. No registration is necessary. Art can be messy, so appropriate clothing is encouraged.

The Clark offers a variety of programs specially designed to initiate family participation in looking at and talking about art. Located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts, the Clark is open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm (daily in July and August). Admission is free November through May.
