Head Start Arts Partnership

Since 2001, the Museum and Brattleboro’s Early Education Services (EES) have collaborated in offering supplementary art experiences for children in local Head Start classrooms. This year Luz Elena Morey brings “Music & Movement” to infants, toddlers, and pre-school age children, and Bonnie Stearns offers “Creativity with Clay” to ages 3-5. Funding from the Vermont Arts Council (with support from the NEA), EES, the Max Y. Seaton Memorial Trust, and private donors allow this program to reach almost 200 children in 14 classrooms.
