Enjoy a playful introduction to art with Family Art Stops, a half-hour, hands-on gallery experience geared for families.
A gallery teacher will greet you in the Museum Entrance Hall and lead you to to a family-friendly work of art in the galleries. You might meet a Renaissance oil painting, a 45-foot-tall steel sculpture, or an opulent tapestry adorned with scampering exotic animals. You and your family will look and learn together as you participate in fun activities such as puzzles, drawing, role-plays, even an artistic version of Mad Libs. Activities and works of art change frequently, making each visit a new experience.
After your Art Stop, your gallery teacher will suggest other family-friendly works of art in the collection that you can visit to practice your new skills at looking and talking about art.
