Saturday, April 1st, 2017 at 2 PM
Perrot's Children's Wing
Perrot Library is pleased to welcome back Alice Scovell Coleman, a lecturer with the Learning to Look program, for an afternoon of art. This program will help us welcome spring by focusing on landscape painting and the Bruce Museum's current exhibit Alfred Sisley (1839-1899): Impressionist Master. Ms. Coleman will bring the Sisley exhibit to life in the context of landscape art. Children will be invited to create their own Sisley-inspired pastel painting after the program.

Learning to Look, an art history and appreciation program for students from kindergarten through high school, was created by Greenwich residents Diane Darst and Sue Ann Williamson. It has been taught by Learning to Look-trained teachers to over 75,000 students at nearly 100 schools in the tri-state area alone.
