Family Learning



FAMILY DAYS


Family Days are designed to help kids and grown-ups explore the Museum’s exhibits together.  They feature hands-on gallery activities and art-making for the whole family.  Family Days happen on selected Saturdays from 10am until noon and they are FREE.  Mark your calendar for our next Family Day on April 22 from 10am until noon.

PRE-K MAKE YOUR MARK!


February 10, February 17, February 24 and March 3
10:30-11:30 am

Bring your littlest artist for some hands-on fun!  Each week, you and your child can make your mark using a variety of tools and materials in an exploratory open-studio setting.  Drop in once or come every week!  These sessions are designed for kids ages 3-5 with a caregiver.  Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. The February 24 session is now full.  Click here to add your name to the waitlist or to register for future dates.


FAMILY ART WORKSHOPS


Explore our exhibits in these free, one-session workshops led by teaching artists and designed to help grown-ups and kids enjoy art together!   Families will get inspired in the galleries and then create their own artwork in the classroom studios.  Most appropriate for kids  ages 5-10, accompanied by an adult.  Space is limited, and pre-registration is required.


FAMILY ART LAB & BOOK NOOK

Located in the Museum's Education Wing, the Family Art Lab and Book Nook are interactive spaces where children can explore art on their own terms—by touching, building and pretending.  Full of blocks, magnatiles, books, art games and more, the Family Art Lab can provide a break during a Museum visit or be a destination in itself.  The Book Nook is a quiet space where kids can peruse our fantastic collection of children’s art books.  We invite families to be creative together in these spaces designed just for them!
