Learning to Look: Family Art Program on Matisse’s Cut-Outs
Saturday, January 10th, 2015, at 2 PM
Perrot’s Children’s Wing
Perrot invites families to join Alice Scovell Coleman, a lecturer with the Learning to Look program, for a fun afternoon of art. This program will feature a presentation about artist Henri Matisse and his colorful compositions from cut paper. After the presentation, children will have the opportunity to make their own collages 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 Museum of Modern Art’s exhibit, Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs [http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/exhibitions/1469], on view until February 10th, 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.
