Art for Tots at noguchi museum

Ever since we learned about this special children's workshops held at noguchi museum in L.I.C., we have been attending the ones conducted in Japanese as much as we can.

Today, Kiliko learned about patterns by creating her own tote.

Harumi, the teacher, always gives us a fun, child-friendly project, which also guides the kids toward the subject of the workshop. I love her choice of materials & ideas. They make it possible for our children to finish the artwork in time, but still give the little ones some challenges. I actually enjoy working on the projects as much as Kiliko does.

Jessica, her assistant, is also there for your child and she is always warm and welcoming.

They offer many different children's workshops and some of them are drop-in programs. The museum is like a city oasis with Noguchi's sculptures spaciously exhibited though out the building & the garden.

A highly recommended destination if you are in New York City.
