Children’s Storytime with Jingle Dancer

November 16, 2019 11:00am – 12:00pm

Stories help bring art to life. We invite our youngest art aficionados for special storytimes thematically linked to the art on view. We’ll open early and have a hands-on activity just for kids. The galleries remain open after we’re done so that attendees can walk through the exhibitions at their own pace. All age groups are welcome, but book selections are geared towards Pre-K to Grade 2.

Saturday, November 16, 11:00 AM-12:00 PM

Music is at the heart of Soundings: An Exhibition in Five Parts. November’s storytime focuses on traditions shared during First Nations powwow celebrations. In Jingle Dancer by Cynthia Leitich Smith, a young girl learns about a traditional dance handed down through generations of women in her family. Written in English and Cree, David Bouchard’s The Song Within My Heart follows a boy preparing for his first powwow.
