Children ages 3-6 will get their bodies moving, minds thinking, hands making, and mouths talking about works of art with this interactive portrait tour.
Students will learn about subjects in art through a story and explore the galleries. Through posing, students will step into the shoes of the portrait subjects, and discover how body language and facial expressions express feelings. The portrait party will end with students sketching their own self-portraits, adding color and texture through collage to complete their artwork.
Portrait Party is one of the National Museum of Women in the Arts’ Art Explorations for Early Learners tours. The museum-educator tours, last approximately 60 minutes, and are limited to 20 students. All materials are provided.
