Family Gallery Guides

Family guides are available in the museum at the Visitor Services Desk. These guides create an engaging experience of our exhibitions, keeping your child’s interest while supporting conversations about how art objects are made or about the people who made them. 

"Always On" Art Experiences + Scavenger Hunts

Unleash your inner artist by participating in one of our “always-on” art experiences! The Bishop Study Center offers art activities for all visitors inspired by objects on view and in our collection. We develop new activities to compliment changing exhibits, techniques and media. 

We also offer scavenger hunts to take into the galleries to engage conversation and spark excitement. Our scavenger hunts rotate throughout the year and vary in theme. 

Family Days

Family Days take place five times a year and revolve around designated exhibitions and themes. These events are typically for ages 5 to 11 but all are welcome. A Family Day begins with a family-friendly tour of art in our galleries and then proceeds to our classroom space for an art activity relating to the tour. A donation is requested for those participating in the art activity: $5 per family or $2 per child. To learn about our next Family Day, visit the Family Programs section of our website.

Tot Times

Children ages 2 – 5 and their families tour the Harn, exploring color, shape, pattern and other “tot” interests, then participate in hands-on art projects. Space is limited. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to start time to register (we no longer take advance registration). To learn about upcoming themes and activities, visit the Family Programs section of our website.

Harn Voices

It refreshes my heart to see folks actively engaging an interest in Art for "small hands" by creating such a lovely atmosphere at the Harn.
