Tower Tots Gets More Exciting!
On March 20, Price Tower Arts Center will continue its very popular program, Tower Tots. The program is a morning story and activity hour for children ages 3 to 6 (with accompanying adult) from 10 a.m-11 a.m. The event is at no cost and registration is recommended.
“Tower Tots allows young people a chance to use their imagination and experience a World Heritage nominated building,” said Timothy Boruff, Executive Director.
“Each time we have a Tower Tots program, we have more and more children. I am so thrilled they are enjoying these fun and educational opportunities we offer at Price Tower Arts Center,” said Ginger Tomshany, Education and Outreach Coordinator.
Tower Tots focuses on activities surrounding the exhibition currently on display at Price Tower Arts Center. On January 20 the first exhibit of 2012 opens with Greta Magnusson Grossman: A Car and Some Short. The first retrospective exhibition of Swedish-American architect and designer Greta Magnusson Grossman (1906-1999) spans four decades, from her education and early training in Sweden to her solo practice in Los Angeles, where she was instrumental is setting the “mid-century modern” identity in southern California. Objects on display will include furniture, lighting, architectural drawings, sketches, photographs, and ephemera.
At the March 20th Tower Tots program, the children will be making pieces of art with their very own initials. PTAC staff and parents will help the children draw their initials in paper and the children will be able to embellish them as they please with crayons or markers.
