Art-making and creative self-expression are at the heart of Wallach Art Gallery Family Programs.

Inspired by exhibitions, activities bring families together for fun and creative interactive learning experiences. While in-person Family Programs are on pause, the Wallach is finding new ways to connect with kids and families with these downloadable PDF activities.

How can we be creative at home? Where are you finding inspiration for your imagination? These questions are the inspiration for a series of activities to help start conversations about life right now.  We are also sharing past activities from Family Afternoons that connect to artworks featured in Wallach Gallery exhibitions. We are also sharing new activities inspired by Wallach Art Gallery exhibitions.
