Join us for a FREE story-time event for all ages hosted by member artist Liz Antle-O'Donnell, her husband Ryan O'Donnell, and Westville's very own Muffy Pendergast. Story selections are inspired by the artwork on view. Audience participation is always encouraged. Hands-on art activities for all ages follow the story. Materials and supplies are free to participants as well. Light refreshments served.
This month we will read Counting on Community by Innosanto Nagara, learn a song about love. and create a community mural.
About Liz: Before becoming a mom to Oliver 18 months ago, Liz was an Early Childhood Educator for nearly a decade. She was most recently a teacher at the Preschool at Neighborhood Music School in New Haven. Liz and her husband Ryan began Let's Play! @ KLG as a fun way for families to gather around art.
About Ryan: Guitar extraordinaire, Ryan leads the musical portion of the morning, (with assistance from son Oliver!)
About Muffy: Deemed “The Empress of the Arts in Westville” (which she loves..), Muffy is a parent, art teacher, community arts organizer, and giant puppet facilitator. She likes to host art happenings at KLG, because she loves to create art with all the kids, while getting to know parents and grandparents, intending to further build community.
This program created in partnership with the ArtEcon Initiative, is made possible with support from the City of New Haven Mayor's Community Arts Grants Program.
