Perrot Library is pleased to welcome back Alice Scovell Coleman, a lecturer with the Learning to Look program, for another afternoon of art. This program will focus on Cubism, one of the most important art movements of the 20th century. After the presentation, children will have the opportunity to make their own geometric pictures based on what they have learned. This program is recommended for families with children ages 5 and up. This event is a wonderful introduction or follow-up to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibit, Cubism: The Leonard A. Lauder Collection [http://www.metmuseum.org/exhibitions/listings/2014/cubism-leonard-a-lauder-collection], on view until February 16th, 2015.
Learning to Look, an art history and appreciation program for students from kindergarten through high school, was created buy Greenwich residents Diane Darst and Sue Ann Williamson. It has been taught by Learning to Look-trained teachers to over 75,000 students at nearly 100 schools in the tri-state area alone.
