Have you heard about the Art After School Program at the Guggenheim? Well, it’s a great way to get get kids involved in the arts early on. They can learn about interesting work that the Guggenheim offers while keeping them out of trouble. Help your child discover their inner artist or art historian.
“Afternoons become an adventure of discovery and fun for kids as they tour the museum’s spectacular Frank Lloyd Wright–designed architecture, and explore our collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, modern and contemporary works of art, as well as our special exhibition The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia.
Children participate in interactive gallery visits and hands-on workshops experimenting with techniques from clay to digital media in individual and team projects. The program culminates with a showcase where students invite their families to view their work.”
