Upcoming Telfair Tots & Stoller Tours

Parent and child explore works by local women artists of the past. How do you translate the people, places, and things around you into a work of art? Make connections with landscapes, portraits and still life paintings for visual learning.

Jump into Martin Parr’s photographs of beaches around the world and compare them to the beach we have right down the road. Parr believes that a beach is a place where quirky behaviors can be found, so come explore coastal life through a different lens.

Go back to the 90’s and see how artists translated social issues through a variety of media. Focus on line, shape, and color in order to read artwork and objects.


The two above new programs are in addition to other kids’ programs currently offered by Telfair Museums in Savannah including WCWM (What Can We Make?) & FREE Family Days offered one Saturday a month. Details here.
