Story Saturdays: With My Hands

Bruce Galleries, Carnegie Museum of Art


Join us in the Ailsa Mellon Bruce Decorative Arts and Design galleries for an in-person story time with Alyssa Velazquez, Curatorial Assistant for Decorative Arts and Design, reading With My Hands: Poems about Making Things by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater, followed by a making activity for children 12 and under.

Listen to a brief and lively collection of poems that celebrate the pleasures and joys of making with your hands. What kind of things? Sit and share this personal experience with us to find out!

This reading is made possible by Clarion/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
