COQUÍ CLUB: Counting with the Incas

Saturday, November 2, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm EDT

FREE

Learn, play, explore, and grow during El Museo’s monthly bilingual program for our tiniest visitors. Join us on the first Saturday and Wednesday of every month as we embark on an adventure to discover new ways of interacting with art and each other. With time for play, storytelling, museum walk and art making, Coquí Club provides a fun and active way to explore El Museo and enjoy creative themes together. Program length: 60 minutes (2 sessions)

This month our tiny visitors will explore artist Cecilia Vicuna’s Quipu Akon One and learn about the quipu, knotted cords used by the Incas to count, communicate, and keep records. Together we will read Up and Down the Andesby Laurie Krebs, and learn and about the ancient Incan festival of Inti Raymi, honoring the Sun God.

Recommended for children ages 1-4 and their caregivers. Dress for a mess! 

There are two sessions of the program, starting at 9:30 and 11:00 am.  Free tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis before each session on the day of the program in the museum lobby.  We recommend arriving a few minutes before each session to sign up, as space is limited and the program often fills up. All participants must be present to receive a ticket.
