BENNINGTON- On Thursday, April 24, at 1:30 pm, Bennington Museum’s ABCs program presents “Paint Like an Impressionist.” Visiting the newly installed exhibition “Three Vermont Impressionists,” attendees learn about what these artists painted and find out what makes a painting an impressionist painting. Books and stories about Impressionists and their style of painting will be shared, and then it is time to paint. Two painting projects will be presented: one that uses images of landscapes to help practice impressionist techniques, and another in which the children will head out “en plein air” to paint outdoors like the impressionists did.

Museum ABCs was developed and is presented in collaboration with the Bennington Free Library. It is a story hour that takes place once each month at 1:30 pm in the galleries of the Bennington Museum. Created especially for children ages 3 to 5, their parents and caregivers, each monthly program includes stories about the selected topic, visits to galleries in the Bennington Museum to observe and talk about an actual piece(s) of art, and an art or craft activity. All children must be accompanied by at least one adult. Sponsored by the Bank of Bennington, Museum ABCs programs are free.

Visit the museum’s website or call (802) 447-1571 for more information.
