“Families often feel that children aren’t welcome in a museum, but exposing children to art at a young age opens them to new experiences – and can jumpstart their creativity,” explains Liz Jackson, President and CEO of the Briscoe Western Art Museum.
“The more often children visit a museum and enjoy the experience, the more comfortable they become with art overall. Programs like Storytime Stampede foster creativity and help families connect in different ways. It’s one of the reasons the Briscoe offers free monthly programs for children, as well as free field trips – we believe in the power of engaging and educating children through art. We want them coming to the Briscoe again and again to learn and grow.”
