Kids Programming

We believe that art is an important tool for a child’s development, physically, emotionally and culturally.

Our children’s programming aims to provide opportunities for kids to engage with fine art and to respond to it through their favorite creative tools and techniques. We also hope to find ways to encourage curiosity and exploration of a variety of art forms through workshops, crafts and even children’s exhibits, all free to the public!

Check out our kids programming archives for crafts and activities you and your child can follow along with at home while learning about art!

Pictura Kids is a bi-monthly art education series for kids ages 6+. These workshops coincide with new photography exhibits opening in Pictura Gallery and are centered around the exhibit on view. Our goal is to make contemporary photography more accessible to a young audience by giving them time and space with the work, teaching them about the exhibiting artist and giving them a chance to create their own versions of the work that they see on the walls.
