Where are we going today?

The art world is an amazing place for kids to learn about from a young age. Those younger kids can look at the colors, and patterns. Those older kids can start to look at technique, emotion, meaning, and begin talking about why they do and don't like certain pieces.

The Riverside Art Museum is a place where the whole family can immerse themselves in this very important world! The building itself is a work of art, with architecture from the early 20th century. 

Did you know that the architect actually designed Hearst Castle? Pretty impressive!

The building is now home to works of art from artists from across the globe, and it's a place where art lovers can all gather to appreciate them.

The exhibits at the Riverside Art Museum showcase a mix of group work, solo work, and permanent collections that feature both traditional, and contemporary/modern art.

Not only do the collections feature artists from all over the world, but they also feature local artists, members, and even high school students! Those pieces of art are a great way to inspire students because you never know - one day your kids might have a piece on the walls too!

Art is supposed to inspire you to create, so of course the Riverside Art Museum hold art classes for parents and kids alike, where you can learn art history and technique.

The museum also host FREE family activities, as well as lectures, book readings, and films.

The classes are divided so you can always pick what's perfect for you - from preschool special needs, teen and weekends.

Welcome to the art world!

    Nice place - ridiculous excuses for art. I saw a. Inch of plywood randomly colored on with a black sharpie. I saw a picture of an older bald man with no shirt and an octopus on his head. No, I ain't kidding
