What is Masterpiece Friday?

Storytime, artmaking and a “lollipop” tour of GreenHill’s current exhibition are in store for you each and every Friday morning during the school year. Activities are geared toward children age 5 and younger. Admission is $6/person, Free for Household level members and above. 


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 exhibition in the gallery, with a focus on math skills and number recognition.
