Children and families are invited to listen to art-centric stories and make art in the museum with artist Avis Turner.
Avis Turner is an artist and educator with degrees in childhood development and art education, as well as an MFA in sculpture. She has more than 25 years of teaching experience in both public and private school settings, and studied the Reggio Emilia Atelier approach at Smith College and at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. In this approach, students are encouraged to be “constructors of knowledge” and “protagonists of their own learning.” Turner is represented by Cooley Galley in Old Lyme, Ct. and Harbor Square Gallery in Rockland. See examples of her work at www.avisturnerart.com.
