Panel Discussion: “Museum Learning for Families”
Summit School, in the Loma Hopkins Theatre
2100 Reynolda Road, Winston-Salem
Summit School will present a panel discussion called “Museum Learning for Families” at 7 p.m. on April 19 in the school’s Loma Hopkins Theatre as part of its Inspiring Learning series. The discussion will feature leaders from four museums in Winston-Salem: Elizabeth Dampier from The Children’s Museum of Winston-Salem, Allison Perkins from Reynolda House Museum of American Arts, Deborah Randolph from the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) and Dr. Paul Kortenaar from SciWorks.
“Museums provide an opportunity for families to spend time exploring and learning together in an intentional way. Museums fascinate, they allow for deep engagement with new ideas that unlock the creative mind,” Julie Smith, director of Lower School and director of parent learning at Summit School said. “They enlarge our worlds and allow us step away from our daily routines for a period of time and emerge renewed.”
