Read With Me

Through our Read With Me program, teaching artists show parents fun ways to create learning experiences for their children at home. These early childhood family workshops give parents and children memorable opportunities to sing, dance and make art together. Children learn literacy skills and receive a free book to take home. Please join us for an upcoming Read With Me workshop every second Saturday of the month!
