Plan a family visit.
Three expansive studios and five additional light-filled classrooms looking out onto a garden create a comfortable place for families to enjoy learning about art together. The new David and Marilyn Fatt Vitale Family Orientation Room promises to be a great place to play with blocks and puzzles or to relax and enjoy a picture book together. A visit to the Curious Corner allows families to learn about works in the collection through an interactive game, and a sneak peak at the exhibition Picture Perfect: Art from Caldecott Award Books, 2006–2009.
With so much additional space, the Department of Museum Education is launching new family programs, including Movers and Makers, a workshop that combines art with dance, storytelling, and drop-in art activities. A series of online videos set to debut this summer help families plan their visit, and new interactive computer games make looking at art more fun than ever. Check the family programs calendar for more details about all of the new things to see and do in the Ryan Education Center.
