Does the museum have tips for talking about art with my children?
PAFA encourages parents to ask questions like "What do you think is going on in this painting and what makes you say that?" to help young visitors develop their own vocabulary around art. PAFA also provides a downloadable Family Gallery Guide of some objects from the permanent collection which has activities for children to do during or before a visit to the museum. (Please note: Only pencils may be used in the galleries.)
Are all PAFA exhibitions appropriate for my child?
Some PAFA exhibitions are geared more toward adults and PAFA's tradition of celebrating the human figure does include nudes at times. 最终, this is a personal preference and parents are encouraged to preview exhibitions or to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about what objects are on view.
How should my children behave in the museum galleries?
Your child should look, talk, laugh, question, play, and explore during their museum visit. We encourage active learning of all kinds, so feel free to encourage your child to act out poses from paintings, 用铅笔和纸写生, tell stories and to do all of it sitting on the floor if that's w在这里 they are comfortable. We ask that you be cognizant of the experience of other visitors in a shared space and make sure t在这里 is no running or touching, 但请, 玩得开心!
PAFA offers programs for artists and art lovers of all ages and skill levels who want to learn about and make art.
