“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” -Dr. Seuss
Getting children to appreciate art is a much harder feat than handing them a paint brush and letting them go wild. Thankfully, ART on 5th has acquired a permanent display of the art of Dr. Seuss.
This provides a segue into appreciating things as opposed to directly taking part in them. The Dr. Seuss collection is an ideal way to get kids to appreciate art. Through the reading of some of Dr. Seuss’s most famous works, such as Green Eggs and Ham or The Cat in the Hat, children will already feel connected to his art.
With technology and fads changing at such a rapid pace, it’s difficult to keep up with the newest games and apps. Art is timeless and can forever be appreciated, no matter how old or new. Since 1937, Dr. Seuss has been creating children’s books that still hold a special place in our hearts, even as adults. This exhibit gives Mom, Dad and children a place to connect with each other through art!
ART on 5th hosts a cycle of art exhibits. So once your kids are hooked on art museums, it will be easy to find other exhibits to attend in order to continue growing their love and knowledge of art.
