Preschool in the Galleries took place at Piedmont Arts when classes from Campbell Court Preschool and First Baptist Church Early Learning Center dropped by the museum for fun, art, and educational enrichment. Both classes spent the morning exploring the Discovery Room, planting native wildflowers on the Pollinator Path, and blowing bubbles. One of the classes ended with a picnic lunch and time to play in the Art Garden.
A series of programs for pre-K students, Preschool in the Galleries is designed to foster a love of the performing and visual arts at a young age. Performances are free to students and schools and frequently feature performers from Carlisle School’s ZipZapZop Theatre Co., Martinsville High School Jazz Band and Stanleytown Elementary Children’s Choir, among others. Events are scheduled regularly. Learn more at PiedmontArts.org.
