Storytelling

At Sugar Hill Children's Museum of Art & Storytelling, storytelling comes alive not only in oral and book forms, but also through visual art, music, dance and film. Children and families are welcome to come hear the stories of others, and are encouraged to create and share their own.

Education

Sugar Hill Children's Museum of Art & Storytelling uses art and storytelling to foster the creativity and cognitive development of children ages 3 to 8 years old. By encouraging and enhancing a child's innate curiosity and competence, we hope to nurture the skills that lead to personal and academic success, and to a lifetime love of learning.
