Enjoy a playful introduction to art with Family Art Stops, a half-hour, hands-on art experience geared for families with children ages 5 and up.

A gallery teacher will greet you in the Museum Entrance Hall and lead you to a family-friendly work of art. 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-playing, and 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.
