MUSEUM AT HOME

In the Museum at Home activity series, we will help you to pretend that your home is a museum! Museums are not the only places that show works of art. Many people collect artwork and objects to display in their homes. From handmade coffee mugs, to children’s drawings, to precious stones, to paintings and more, people tend to surround themselves with works that are pleasing to look at, or make them think in a new way, or that remind them of an important event or person. There is no one reason why people collect and appreciate art, but it is a very important part of life!

Come back the next few weeks for more activities in this series!
