Engaging programs. From our family to yours.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and limited access during our hours of operation, the Museum is currently unable to offer docent led tours to groups or in-person programs, but are offering some of our programs virtually.

The Westmoreland invites families to dive right in and experience American art. We offer a wealth of hands-on programs created to delight, inspire and engage all ages.

IN-GALLERY ACTIVITY GUIDES & TAKE-HOME ART KITS
Explore the galleries with your family and connect with artworks in a new way with our In-gallery Activity Guide and create works of art at home with a Take-home Art Kit!

The in-gallery activities will encourage you and your family to find out some facts about the artwork and artist, observe details, and turn looking into learning. The take-home kits extend your Museum visit and allow your child to connect to their inner artist at home with art activities and supplies.

Each month this spring (April, May and June), we will offer two new themed In-gallery Activity Guides and Take-home Art Kits featuring different artworks and activities. The first two guide and kit themes are Share Stories and Highlight History and examples of the finished take-home kits are below

Share Stories Take-home Art Kit

Highlight History Take-home Art Kit

Upcoming themes are Nurture Nature, Express Emotions, Create Community and Tell Truths. Centered around these themes, you’ll have fun exploring works in The Westmoreland’s collection with your child.

Did your family create something special using one of our guides or kits — or even a project of your own inspired by these resources? Share it on social media using #TheWestmorelandForFamilies

The In-gallery Activity Guides and Take-home Art Kits are best suited for children ages 4-10 years old, but offer fun for the whole family.
