ALBANY — The Albany Institute of History and Art will present the next session of its nature-themed ’Tute for Tots Summer 2016 program on Friday, August 5, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. This week’s class will focus on birds.
Participants will go on an birding expedition to look for feathered friends in paintings and artifacts arts throughout the museum, before heading back to the studio to create some feathery art of their own.
’Tute for Tots classes are designed to give parents and children a chance to discover both AIHA and the world of art together. Each week, attendees will search for specific items in works currently on display in the galleries, read stories, explore through sensory play and create exciting arts projects in the studio, using methods including finger painting, wet on wet painting, tissue paper staining, collage and more! Classes are best suited for children ages 3 through 5, who must be accompanied by an adult.
’Tute for Tots sessions will be held weekly on Friday mornings from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Through Sept. 2. While each session builds upon the last, individual class registration is also available. Upcoming classes will focus on animals, water, rainbows and mountains.
Cost is $12 per child with adult ($10 for AIHA members) and registration is required for each class.
