i.d.e.a. Museum's early literacy program goes on Spring tour

March 18, 2017 at 7:41 am

The i.d.e.a. Museum's preschool program - ArtFul Tales Experience - is heading to three Mesa libraries this spring. Caregivers and children can come out and enjoy the book Even Superheroes Have Bad Days by Shelly Becker on select days.

ArtFul Tales Experience is an art and literacy program designed for children ages 2 to 5. The storytelling program focuses on helping parents prepare toddlers and preschoolers to develop pre-reading skills, nurture creative expression, and build vocabulary by incorporating an art-making activity following a special story.

Many preschool groups come to the museum to participate in the program. During every exhibition, the museum brings ArtFul Tales Experience to the libraries for free to make early learning programs available to the community.

ArtFul Tales Experience is supported in part by The Steele Foundation.
