Day at the Norton Museum w kids

A spur of the moment decision as I was searching their page at 5:55 AM and they have programming for kids this morning and most Saturdays starting 10:30 a.m.

Guided tour

It was just wonderful. My charges speak no English, having recently immigrated. Met with the tour, specific to this age group. pleased that they had volunteers who speak Spanish, as yet I’m not able to communicate and Marta Cruz, Norton volunteer, took on the twins and guided them translating along the way.

The kids family activities take place on the second floor in The Carroll Family room. They fund this activity with supplies, instructors to make it a viable on going activity. Participants take their projects home sometimes even get to keep some of the supplies that were already laid out for their use.

This Saturday was Giacometti’s with instruction from Ingrid Sanchez. Next Saturday will be Picasso’s turn. Registration is highly recommended as this programming is joyful and desirable. Parents can enjoy other exhibitions while the kids are engaged or participate.

Joy for the entire family “ family plays together stays together”.

Norton does have art work that resonates with kids. Here we were introduced to a different kind of sculpture beside Giacometti. Even Picasso had something to delight a child his drawing of Paloma as a child, with her doll

When at the Norton I always visit Robert Henri’s “Sonny Mac” he was not in his usual spot. Darn. They rotate their art holdings. Oh well! No, I am disappointed.
