How Families Learn at the Art Museum
The Art Museum plans programs for families that will spark a child’s interest in the arts. Every work of art in the galleries is special and filled with surprises, so don’t try to see the entire museum in just one day. Spending a longer time looking at and discussing just a few of your favorites, will enhance the connection your family makes to the inspiring objects on view.
By engaging with original works of art and participating in creative and interactive learning experiences, your children will develop skills that are necessary for success in all school subjects.
Did you know that:
- The arts teach children that problems can have more than one solution and that questions can have more than one answer.
- The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world
- The arts help children learn to say what cannot be said. When children are invited to disclose what a work of art helps them feel, they must reach into their poetic capacities to find the words that will do the job.
