The National Museum of Women in the Arts has released a variety of fun and free digital activities for families on the NMWA @ Home portal, such as audio stories, coloring books, videos, and an arts-based curriculum.
Here are just a few of them. And the list goes on!
* Story Time with Women in the Arts, where you can listen to museum staff reading children’s picture books authored or illustrated by women
* Downloadable Coloring Books featuring artworks from the museum’s collection
* Interactive See For Yourself art cards, a unique way for kids to engage with artworks and discover new cultural facts
* Art, Books, and Creativity (ABC), a visual and language arts curriculum that is designed for parents to easily teach the arts at home. The curriculum, which is available in English & Spanish, includes 14 lesson plans, high-resolution images, artists’ biographies, book-making instructions, a vocabulary list, and short video clips.
* Weekly photography discussions – Every Monday, The New York Times posts a photo without a caption and invites viewers to join a live discussion about what they see, moderated by NMWA educators, among others.
