Banana Factory Arts Center
Thursdays from 10 – 10:45 am
This exciting FREE program is part of a new partnership between ArtsQuest’s Banana Factory Arts Center and The Bethlehem Area Public Library. Join us as we look, listen, sing, and have fun with picture books in the Banana Factory’s Crayola Gallery. Led by Bethlehem Area Public Library librarians and ArtsQuest staff members, we will celebrate pictures books with a different art theme each week. After Storytime, your family is encouraged to explore the galleries and art studios at the Banana Factory to further experience the visual arts.
Why Visual Literacy?
“Art appreciation begins with the simple, yet common practice of reading to young children. During Storytime, parents and teachers can help develop visual literacy – the ability to interpret the visual world – by encouraging children to respond to illustrations that engage, enlighten, and excite them.”
