This month at the Cooper Hewitt family programs abound with both the Design Tales and Design Kids workshops. Design Tales, held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 12:30pm at the CH’s satellite location (111 Central Park North in Harlem), explores design and literacy through interactive reading sessions of design-based books, followed by visualization, imaginative play, and hands-on activities for the little ones. All Design Tales sessions are free for preschoolers and their caregivers and are lead by a museum educator. On Thursday, June 4, 2015, Design Tales will be held on-site at the museum (2 East 91st Street) with master storyteller Jonathan Kruk. Design Kids, for ages 5-12, will take place this month at the museum on Saturdays, June 6 and 20, 2015. This challenge-based workshop for older children allows children to design their own pieces of art and design, inspired by one of the museum's current exhibitions.
The Cooper Hewitt National Design museum is open Weekdays and Sundays, 10am-6pm, and Saturdays, 10am-9pm. Admission is $18 for adults and free for children under 18.
