Tell Me a Story explores storytelling in books and art works. Over the course of a few weeks, we will read a chapter book and explore similar narratives found in the Museum’s art objects. At the end of each book, participants will create their own artwork based on these themes.

This month, we will be reading Deborah Zemke’s Bea Garcia: My Life in Pictures. We will be exploring how the artists in the Folly Cove and the Fitz Henry Lane galleries tell stories through their art, just like Bea Garcia.
