The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History will host an exhibition in honor of National Parent Leadership Month, Road to Discovery: the Parent Child Interface, on display from February 15 to May 3. The free exhibition opens Saturday, February 15 at 10am and will include a reception, a hands on art activity for parents and children, and museum gallery viewing.
The exhibit features original by Bibi Olague, a 6 year old local artist. The story of Bibi’s art and her father’s involvement serves as a remarkable example of the positive synergy that can occur that can happen between a parent and child on the road to discovery.
Recent studies suggest that not only do young children process and remember what they see in different ways than adults, but also that the discovery and learning process is greatly enhanced by parental support.
Parents are their children’s first teacher. The child’s development and learning is facilitated when parents respond to their children’s requests in a positive and constructive manner, while helping them learn to solve problems on their own.
The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History is committed to promoting, and cultural and natural history with the integration of art in exhibits and educational programs. The museum is open to visitors Tuesday-Saturday from 10am-5pm.
