Programs for Kids @ Joslyn
We aim for kid-friendly!
Besides special programs and events, Joslyn provides children and
families with tools to engage in independent art exploration and
hands-on learning. When you're at the Museum, visit Art Works: A Place for Curiosity
to enjoy nine hands-on activity stations with connections
to art in the galleries, or stop by the Scott EdTech Gallery
to pick-up a
printed gallery guide, check-out an Art Pack, explore art using an
iPad, and more!
for a printable flyer of kids and family programs at Joslyn Art Museum.

Joslyn offers docent-guided tours designed for moms, dads, and caregivers to look at and talk about art with other adults, while being mindful of young ones in arms and strollers. Gather in Joslyn's ConAgra Foods Atrium on Wednesdays at 9:30 am
for complimentary pastries and refreshments. Then head to the galleries for 10 am tours that will keep you up-to-date on Joslyn's permanent collection and exciting special exhibitions. Tandem strollers and crying babies welcome!

Do you have kids who snicker at art with nudes and you don't know what to say? Try Undressing the Nudes
for a brief exploration of the nude in art and an explanation of why the figure is an important symbolic and technical tool for artists.
