Cuéntame un Cuadro (Tell Me the Story of an artwork) is a story-telling program in Spanish for families with children ages 5 to 9. Discover fun facts about Hispanic art and culture while you learn and create together. The Hispanic Society Museum and Library is closed for renovations, but their programs—like Cuéntame un Cuadro—are moving to different spaces around the community.
Hello, Hello, Hello! Sing, dance & play with the magical musical stories performed by the fabulous Flor Bromley!
