The Art Museum is a great place for you and your family to explore new works of art, spark creativity through imagination, encourage curiosity and promote critical thinking skills.
Before your visit to the Art Museum, please read the Pre and Post Field Trip Activities (under School Programs/Field Trips) to help make your family visits are fun and educational. This guide is designed for school groups and organizations but can be easily adjusted for your family visit.
WHILE TOURING THROUGH THE GALLERIES…
LOOK CLOSELY at the artwork, without touching. Discover the lines, shapes and colors the artists have used.
ASK EACH OTHER QUESTIONS! What do you see? What is your favorite part? Does the artwork remind you of anything?
SKETCH WHAT YOU SEE OR FEEL using paper and pencils. If you did not bring your own sketching materials, you can borrow ours. Just ask the front desk receptionist.
I SPY is always a great game to play with your family while touring through the galleries. This also helps discover things that we may overlook upon the first glance.
