National Gallery of Art for Kids!

My 7 year olds art work
The National Gallery of Art has some absolutely wonderful resources for kids online! The picture above was created on their website by my 7 year old. The NGA has an interactive art zone that children can use like the one used to create the picture above, and it also has some WONDERFUL video tours for kids! We really enjoyed watching The Voyage of Life (1842) by Thomas Cole. They also have a resource section for students and teachers, as well as a material lending program!

Let me know what you think of these resources! We've also got the Child Size Masterpieces collection and the children have really enjoyed those as well. Montessori Print Shop also has an amazing collection of famous artist 3-part cards and more. The NGA website could be a great extension to those. Enjoy!
