What is there to do?

Art is an amazing thing. There is so right or wrong, and it's a great way for kids to really express themselves. If you want to introduce the children to the art world, or continue their journey, then head to the Fort Wayne Museum of Art.

Filled with ever changing exhibitions, as well as permanent collections, the museum can expose kids of all ages to the various genres that we call art.

The exhibitions at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art cover a range of topics, so there should always be something that captures the attention of those little ones. They sometimes focus on one particular artist, or they focus on a TYPE of art...such as glass blowing, or sculptures.

As you walk around, it's a great chance to open conversations with the children about what they think. The younger ones will love the colors and shapes, and the older ones can start to look at the techniques, and form opinions on what they love and don't love about them.

The permanent collections at the museum also cover fascinating topics, such as Indiana Impressionism, prints & drawings, and even American Brilliant Cut Glass. Who knew art came in all these forms!?

Keep an eye out for special events that are held at the museum too. From Summer Art, to Curators Tours, they are often a great way to learn just that little bit more about the art in the museum, and more importantly to ask questions!
