WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — This winter, the Clark Art Institute continues two of its popular programs for families with young children, New Parents Gallery Talks and Start with Art.

New Parents Gallery Talks are designed for parents/guardians and their infants. Parents and guardians can enjoy a guided visit in our galleries without having to find a babysitter. Talks take place on Fridays Jan. 3, Feb. 7 and March 6 from 10:15 to 11:15 a.m. Strollers and front-carrying baby carriers are permitted. The gallery talks are most appropriate for parents/guardians and pre-toddlers.

The Start with Art program introduces young children between the ages of 3 and 6 years old to art in a fun and age-appropriate way. Preschoolers and their parents or guardians are invited to the Clark from 10 a.m. to noon on select Saturdays for themed talks, gallery guides, and art-making activities specially designed for the age group. Upcoming themes are Storytelling (Jan. 11), Faces and Feelings (Feb. 8) and Shape and Color (March 14). Art-making activities can be messy, so dressing in casual clothing is encouraged.

These programs are free and open to the public. No registration or ticket purchase is required.

That meeting was one of four held in executive session for the stated purpose of conducting contract negotiations with nonunion personnel, specifically the superintendent.
An extemporaneous statement by committee member Al Terranova at a July 13 public meeting indicated that the panel did more behind closed doors than simply discuss contract negotiations.
