SmART Kids

Age Range: 7-12

This website was created by the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago to help kids “look at, think about, and respond creatively to art.” There are both structured and open-ended art activities. When you get to the site you’ll watch a brief introduction and then see four animated children. Place your cursor over them to find out what activities they will guide you to that include:

  • Look & Share – Learn about photographs, explore sculpture and pottery, see an oil painting demo, and more.
  • Art Detective – In this game you read clues to figure out the correct titles of various artworks.
  • Artist Studio – Virtually visit an artist’s studio – meet the artist, look at their artwork, and watch the artist at work.
  • Art Speak – This glossary explains art terminology that is used throughout the SmART Kids presentation.

You can also click on “Artwork of the Month” to learn about a particular piece of art and access the archives of other featured works too.

Enjoy!
