POSTPONED - One Enchanted Evening: Parents' Night at The Carle

April 12, 2007
7:00 - 8:30 pm
Free with Museum Admission

—an evening without the kids but about the kids! Our Instructor of Children’s Literature Programs, Megan Lambert, will talk about how to translate some of the Museum’s storytime methods into home reading experiences. Learn about reading pictures and other gallery activities and see a sampling of fun art activities for young children in the Studio. All with time for refreshment, mingling, and browsing the Museum at your own pace—a dream come true.

This event has been postponed due to the inclement weather. We will reschedule as soon as possible. Thank you! (Posted at 12:30 pm 4/12/2007)

First Fridays @ The Carle

April 6, 2007
4:00 - 7:00 pm
Free with Museum Admission

The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art offers families the opportunity to meet, eat, and enjoy all of the Museum's regular public programs and special exhibitions at a time convenient for you!

Taking a cue from the Museum's popular Member PJ parties, which have been cited by families as the perfect bedtime transition for little ones, First Fridays @ The Carle invites visitors to head to the Museum after school/work, grab a quick and casual bite to eat in the Museum's Café, enjoy a Storytime in the Reading Library, drop by the Galleries, take in a short film in the Auditorium, and create a masterpiece in the Art Studio . . . all before bedtime!

The program runs from 4:00 to 7:00 pm on the first Friday of each month.

Made possible by The Bank of Western Massachusetts.
