What is Masterpiece Friday?
Story-time, art making, sensory activities and a “lollipop” tour of GreenHill’s most current exhibition are in store for you each and every Friday morning at 11:00 am. Activities are geared toward children age 5 and younger. Free with admission or membership.
Lollipop Tours in the gallery include:
Eye Spy Lollipop Tour: Young children will play eye spy to develop their ability to look closely at the details of a work of art.
Art Response Scavenger Hunt: Children will take a walking tour of the gallery and determine which works of art they attribute to certain feelings, with a focus on emotional awareness and vocabulary development.
Seeing Shapes & Colors Lollipop Tour: Children will identify the shapes and colors they find during a walking tour of the current exhibition in the gallery.
Touch & Feel Lollipop Tour: Young children will develop an understanding of the textures they see in the current exhibition in the galleries through the handling of surfaces and objects they can touch and feel.
Hidden Numbers Lollipop Tour: Children will identify the numbers of people, places and things they find in artwork during a walking tour of the current exhibition in the galleries, with a focus on math skills and number recognition.

GreenHill’s Early Bird Friday | Summertime in the Studios
During the summer join us for Open Studio for the early bird. Start your Fridays with a fresh painting, a nice blob of clay, or read a story and build with blocks. Early Bird Fridays are a time when families can enjoy a self-guided artmaking experience in the studios as well as take time to view the current exhibition in the galleries at GreenHill. Perfect for ages 1 and up. $6.00 per person.
