GREENWICH, Conn. -- The Bruce Museum in Greenwich is offering some upcoming special events for arts lovers of all ages.

A program for youngsters ages 3 to 5 years old called Printmaking With Old Masters will be offered from 12:30 to 1:15 p.m. Wednesday, July 10.

The kids and their adult caregivers will be able explore the museum's galleries through hands-on experiences, crafts, stories and more.

The lecture will be the first in a series of two on "Dürer, Rembrandt and Whistler: Prints from the Collection of Dr. Dorrance T. Kelly."

Sutton, executive director of the Bruce Museum, will address the popular assumption that Dutch art is a literal record of reality. With selected comparisons, he will demonstrate that this form of naturalism is equal parts observation and invention, reportage and confection.
