Learning to Look: Family Art Program on Portraiture

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 portraiture, particularly the art of John Singer Sargent. After the presentation, children will have the opportunity to create their own portrait on paper. This program is recommended for families with children ages 5 and up (but adults, too, are welcome). This event is a wonderful introduction or follow-up to the exhibit, John Singer Sargent’s Mrs. Carl Meyer and Her Children at the Jewish Museum in New York City.
Learning to Look, an art history and appreciation program for students from kindergarten through high school, was created by 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.
