Topsy Turvy Thursdays at Sugar Hill Children’s Museum

Who knows what will happen next?! Join in the story making and build on tales that can only take the shape of a child’s imagination, with our very own Carletta Walker.  Book worms can enjoy our weekly Story Hour program every Thursday and Friday! The intimate storytelling presentation features a solo performer with roots in the community delighting our ‘little audience’ with a participatory and lively program. Performers have included Laura Bowman, Flor Bromley, Daniel Carlton, Alison Cox, Kelley Kelley, and Carletta Joy Walker.

Storytelling is the oldest and most powerful means for sharing history and values, and for encouraging imagination in young children. And it’s one of the pillars of learning at Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling.

Performed through a variety of methods, our storytellers engage children in the timeless oral tradition as well as through the arts of theater, movement, music and film. Children are encouraged to reflect on what they hear, and to author and share their own stories—a practice that builds language skills, critical thinking and confidence.

Cuéntame un Cuadro at Word Up

Cuéntame un Cuadro (Tell Me the Story of an art work) is a story-telling program in Spanish for families with children ages 5 to 9. Discover fun facts about Hispanic art and culture while you learn and create together.  The Hispanic Society Museum and Library is closed for renovations, but their programs—like Cuéntame un Cuadro—are moving to different spaces around the community. Other dates in this series are April 29 and June 24.
