Art Investigators: Ages 4–7

How do you investigate a work of art? This program helps children make careful observations, analyze artists’ choices, ask questions, and use their imagination while exploring works of art. Led by museum educators, each program includes reading a children’s book, exploring one work of art in the galleries, and completing a simple hands-on activity. Each program is approximately 60 minutes. See dates and topics below.

These free drop-in programs are designed for individual families on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no advance registration and space is limited, so please plan accordingly. We will only accept sign-in for children in the age range for which the program is tailored. Groups cannot be accommodated in the program.

Same-day program sign-up will take place in the East Building Atrium beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Saturdays and at 11:00 a.m. on Sundays, and will continue until all spaces are filled.
