Young Learner Tour: Spotting Shapes and Looking for Lines

Kids rule and art is cool on this tour! 

Young Learner Tours, exclusively for children ages 3 to 6 and their adults, are designed to get little bodies moving, minds thinking, hands making, and mouths talking about works of art.

Participants go on an adventure through the galleries and look closely at works in the collection. They learn about the museum, practice museum manners, and discover art concepts through developmentally appropriate discussions, a themed story, and hands-on activities.

During this shape- and line-focused tour, participants will:

  • Discover and identify shapes and lines through close looking at two works of art
  • Use their eyes, bodies, and creativity to observe and express these basic elements of art
  • Learn the difference between two- and three-dimensional artworks, and geometric and organic forms
  • Create three-dimensional multimedia artworks that reflect their understanding of shapes and lines

Note: One adult per three young learners is required.

Free. Online registration is now closed. A limited number of walk-in will be accommodated. First-come, first-served.
