Curious Corner

The Art Institute of Chicago

Grades PreK-6, with parental supervision

The Art Institute of Chicago designed this animated and interactive website to help young children and their families explore more than 40 works of art through playful and creative activities.

When you get to the site you’ll see the three main game categories that are offered:

  • Story Time – Read three stories online that are illustrated with works of art.

  • Match Up – Match textures, shapes, and sounds. Click and drag textured sections of a painting to the area they match. Do the same with shapes. Match pictures in a painting to the sounds that they make.

  • Play with Art – Make virtual artistic boxes or masks. Have fun matching portraits to the right work or art.

Click on any game, wait for it to load, and the fun begins! This is a great way to introduce kids to art and/or it may serve as a springboard for learning more about it.

Note: We make every effort to recommend websites that have content that is appropriate for general audiences. However, all of ClickSchooling’s recommendations assume that parents will preview the sites for suitable content, and then review the sites together with their children.
