• Children’s Art Tour At The Metropolitan Museum Of Art This Saturday

    Join ArtXplorers on a fantastic adventure with “Monsters, Dragons and Other Mythological and Fantastical Creatures.”

    By Natasha Schlesinger

    Did you know that there are many mythical creatures hiding out at the Metropolitan Museum of Art? My adventurous art tours for children, ArtXplorers, will take kids on a journey to find some of these amazing beings and their unique histories, from French dragons to African Masks to the ancient Greek story of Perseus and Medusa. We will discover some fantastical creatures from ancient Greek, Mexican, African, and Assyrian lore, and end the tour with a kids’ art project in which we make our very own mythical creatures.

    So in between helping our city recover from Hurricane Sandy this weekend, why not take a quick break with your family this Saturday and come along on an art tour? It will give your children a chance to relax, take in some culture, and learn about the wonders of worlds and myths beyond our own.
