What is there to do?

The art world is an amazing place to be. Why? Because there is no right or wrong answer!

The Columbus Museum of Art is just one of those places dedicated to showcasing some of the best and more creative pieces of art, as well as inspiring creativity and thought in all who visit!

The Columbus Museum of Art not only has an incredible collection, but they also have rotating exhibitions, so there is always something new for you to explore!

The collections range from Early American Modernism, European Modernism, Folk Art, Old Masters and Photography - just to name a few! Each collection is so different, it's amazing what conversations can be had about why kids prefer certain ones over others. 

The older kids would appreciate the textures and the composition of the art, but the younger kids can look at the colors, and the pictures. It's a great talking point to get them analysing what they like, and maybe they will even be inspired later!

The exhibitions often cover specific artists, or a technique, they are always filled with information about the history of the artist, as well as the artwork itself. Art galleries are a place to learn too!

The museum love having people learn, and they haven't forgotten about families! There are Open Studio Saturdays every week where families of any age can drop in and explore ideas and solve creative challenges. It's also FREE with admission!

They also offer family adventures, where you can play games, share ideas and even embark on scavenger hunts! Pretty fun!

So immerse the family in the wonderful world of art, and head on down to the Columbus Museum of Art!
