The New Milford Historical Society & Museum will offer “Look at Artists, A Children’s Art History Course,” for children in first through fourth grades beginning Sept. 24.

The course, designed to improve and increase visual literacy for children, will meet Thursdays from 4 to 5 p.m. Sept. 24 through Oct. 15.

Kathy Elmore, MLS, with over 20 years’ experience as a children’ librarian in Connecticut public libraries, will lead the course.

Students will learn about a different artist during each week by reading a story about that artist, then creating a project in his/her style.

Artists to be explored include VanGogh, Picasso/Matisse, Mary Cassatt and Andy Warhol.

The program will end with an art show and reception displaying the student’s artwork in the Boardman Gallery of the museum.

A reception for the art show will be held Oct. 22 at 4 p.m.

The cost is $30 for members and $35 for non-members.
