Baby Arts Play

Experience New Orleans’ best art and cultural institutions with  your youngest learners.

Join us for Young Audiences Baby Artsplay!TM Presented by The Helis Foundation. Our newly expanded program offers an opportunity for young children and their caregivers to enjoy an educational, yet fun-filled trip to the museum. Hosted by eight cultural institutions around the city, Baby Artsplay!TM provides engaging activities designed to instruct parents, caregivers, and early childhood teachers in how to use the arts at home, school, and daycare to promote early learning. 

Our 30-minute workshops allow children to explore, observe and investigate their world and the museum through song, dance and movement experiences. Workshops explore six key themes in early childhood development:

  • Workshop 1 - My 5 Senses (sensory)
  • Workshop 2 - Baby Says...(language)
  • Workshop 3 - My Body (learning body parts)
  • Workshop 4 - Let's Move! (movement)
  • Workshop 5 - Up, Down & and All Around (spatial awareness)
  • Workshop 6 - Get Your Motor Running (motor skills) 

Workshops are conducted by a diverse group of certified Louisiana Wolf Trap Artists, who have expertly crafted multi-sensory experience that foster children’s natural curiosity for learning. Children and their caregivers will leave each session with a Connections Card exploring how workshop activities can be continued at home. Caregivers are encouraged to attend each of six workshops in a series.
