Free for members, free with admission
The Grand Rapids Art Museum and Grand Rapids Public Library have teamed up to present a fun family outing each month!
All story time programs take place at the Museum, and include story time, mini family exhibition tours, and an art project. Programs are for children of all ages, and last approximately 90 minutes.
September: A Trip Around the World
Pack your bags for a journey across the globe! To get your first passport stamps, the Grand Rapids Public Library will read several books about far away places and sing songs in different languages. A tour guide will take families through the exhibitions to sightsee as they travel to different countries and cultures. Finally, families venture to GRAM Studio to create a special work of art as a souvenir of their world travels!
October: Spooky Adventure
Halloween is just around the corner, and families of all ages can explore the spooky fun (without the scary). After hearing several spooky stories and singing spirited songs that all ages will enjoy, a tour guide will lead families through the exhibitions in search of eerie details in artwork. Afterward, enter GRAM Studio to create a ghouly art project to take home!
November: Game Time
On your mark, get set, go! The Grand Rapids Public Library will read several stories about athletes and sports competitions for the first round of the Story Time Playoffs. During the second round, a tour guide will take families into ‘Who Shot Sports’ to discover over 200 sports photographs and test your skills in several fun competitions. For the finish line, race down to GRAM Studio and create an art project to become the Story Time champion!
