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 American Impressionism, particularly artists Childe Hassam and John Singer Sargent. After the presentation, children will have the opportunity to create their own Impressionist garden on paper. This program is recommended for families with children ages 5 and up. This event is a wonderful introduction or follow-up to the New York Botanical Garden’s exhibit, Impressionism: American Gardens on Canvas, on view from May 14th through September 11th.
