NEW! Stories in Art sessions to be offered entirely in ASL this summer! 

Starting July 10!
Space is limited to register now!

Stories in Art introduces children (ages 4 to 7) to artists through careful looking, storytelling, and hands-on experimentation. 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.

Summer Story Series: Discover Dutch Art
Would you like to visit the Netherlands this summer? Pack your imagination and travel to the National Gallery of Art! You’ll visit a windmill, sail the seas, discover mince pie, and listen to a concert. Participants learn about landscapes, still life, seascapes, and scenes of interior Dutch life by reading children’s books, looking at 17th-century Dutch art, and making a souvenir to document each adventure. You will receive a passport to the summer story series and a stamp for each program attended. If you collect all four stamps at the end of the summer, you will receive a prize!

Families who use ASL are invited to participate in sessions led by a deaf guide on the following dates:
Sunday, July 10 at 3:30
Sunday, July 17 at 3:30
Sunday, July 24 at 3:30
Sunday, July 31 at 3:30

Because this is a pilot program, families will be asked to register in advance.
Space is limited to register now!
