Celebrate Senegal!

Totally Tots Studio – Stories and Art of Senegal

10:00am to 12:00pm | Ages 2.5 – 5

Kids make their own creative colorful artworks inspired by Senegalese artist Cheikhou Ba. Studio activities invite young artists to build and refine their fine motor skills; engage in sensory exploration of materials, and learn how to share with others in this open art studio. There is no such thing as a bad mess in this space, which is tailored to children five and younger.


Holding History

11:00am to 1:00pm | Ages 4+

Explore the arts and culture of Senegal and other West African countries through BCM’s touchable collections. Visitors are invited to explore pattern, texture, and material through handling real museum objects and learning about their origins.
