Tips for experiencing art together
If you want to explore the museum on your own, here are some tips to experience ART together. When you’re looking at art with children, ask them:
- What do you see? Do you like it? Why or why not?
- How does the artwork make you feel? Describe your feelings in colors.
- Search for shapes, colors, or animals. How many can you find?
- Visit our 20th century galleries. Can you find art with nothing in it except colors, shapes, lines, textures? That’s called abstract art. Can you draw an abstract artwork?
- Sit near your favorite artwork and draw what you see and feel. Share your drawing with us!
- Read books together in the Remastered Galleries. Or, bring your own favorite book, find a comfy seat, and enjoy. (We have lots of great books in the shop—have a look!)
- Act out stories in the art, or write your own story inspired by an artwork. Share your story with us!
- Take a picture with your favorite artwork and send it to us!
- Take a break! Sit on a bench or visit our Higgins Education Wing. It is a great place to unwind with kid-friendly activities like drawing, playing games, or having a snack.
- And, remember, you can always come back!

About the Worcester Art Museum
Founded in 1896, the Worcester Art Museum’s encyclopedic 38,000-piece collection covers 51 centuries of art. Highlights include the Medieval Chapter House, Renaissance Court, and Worcester Hunt Mosaic, as well as the recently integrated John Woodman Higgins Armory Collection of arms and armor. The Museum is internationally known for its collection of European and American art. It was the first in America to acquire paintings by Monet and Gauguin and one of the first to collect photography. As the first U.S. museum to focus on collaborating with local schools, it has been at the forefront of engaging audiences and giving them a meaningful and personal experience for over a century.
