National Gallery of Art

Ideal for Preschool/Pre-K, School-Age

A paint brush mixes paint on a wooden hand-paint-pallet.

For this virtual field trip, we visit The National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC where there are a wide variety of activities for kids and families! The NGAkids Art Zone app contains eight interactive activities inspired by works in the collection of the National Gallery of Art, plus a sketchbook for freehand drawing and a personal exhibition space where users can save and display art created with the program. The child-friendly interface, easy-to-use tools, and the overarching emphasis on discovery, careful looking, and artistic self-expression make the app educational and fun for the whole family.
